  1. This is a densely written book which is rich in ideas Polanyi was a chemist of the first rank, and the scientific precision with which he expresses himself can be, frankly, tedious in this respect he reminds me of the phenomenonlogist Edmund Husserl, who was the betrayed mentor of Heidegger.Perhaps Polanyi s key insight is that there is no certainty not in scientific facts, nor in logic, nor in rationality Everything that we know , we have actually made a personal commitment to accept as true So [...]


  2. Reccomend this book to your enemies, especially the ones who act smarter than they are Why First, they ll have no excuse of saying it s Too old or Outdated Second, they ve never heard of Polanyi Third, it s less risky than dosing their drink with acid but equally effective Fourth, in case you decide not to you can read this obscure, mind breaking book yourself Shout out 2 Michael Polanyi, I found u amidst a pile of socks.



  3. This is such a thick, dense book, and so rich with ideas, some of which are brilliant and subtle, some of which reek of bullshit, and a great deal of which contradict each other.The core of it think harder about things, science isn t quite as positivist as we think it is, our daily experiences are peppered with acts of faith, and that everything occurs on multiple levels of experience our challenge as people who know things is to be cognizant of our acts of faith, and to realize which levels we [...]


  4. This is not for the faint of heart it s challenging and difficult in many places, but is one of the few books that Len Sweet assigns to every doctoral class that he teaches You will definitely be rewarded if you persevere, but maybe find a friend with whom you can discuss and compare notes It s about the fallacy of the purely scientific method and the impossibility of there being any kind of objective knowledge.


  5. Wow, what a long slog this one was I have been off and on reading this for what feels like two years now I first happened upon Polyani after reading a pamphlet of his that touched on one of the themes of this work, that science is not a dogmatic authoritarian system of reason but an art that is practiced using all the inequitable faculties of humans That work was amazing I even gave it five stars but this book was the inevitability of extending that pamphlet across 400 pages of jargon laden onto [...]


  6. This is certainly an essential book to read if one is interested in epistemology in general and absolutely necessary if one is wanting to understand of the scientific method and the myth that is upheld about science s objectivity Polanyi argues very well, and well informed, about how the scientist needs to be personal in his her quest for knowledge Personal knowledge does not directly lead to relativity though But here I think is the weak point in the book I didn t perhaps read it as thorough a [...]


  7. Epistemology without the arcane syntax and vocabulary Also, rather than try to define the mind, reality, and how we know that we know, Polanyi takes the remarkable tack of describing how we know what we know, arguing that we in fact know than we know how to describe or articulate I would have given the book 5 stars but for his struggles to reconcile Darwinianism with the fact of human sentience Polanyi acknowledges human cognizance denying behaviorism , accepts a form of vitalism, teleological [...]


  8. This is a book with whose project I have much sympathy This sounds awkward and condescending, and that is my fault, but it s true It is the effort of a successful chemist who turned to philosophy later in his career to engage with the broader implications of scientific knowledge and activity on the wider field of human knowledge It seeks to challenge what Polanyi considers the orthodoxy of the critical mindset, which he regards as little better than scientism Ultimately, however, all Polanyi off [...]


  9. The principle purpose of this book is to achieve a frame of mind in which I may hold firmly to what I believe to be true, even though I know it might conceivably be false A book written by a scientist in the mid 1950 s, which, to over simplify, addresses the problem of belief created by Karl Popper If the only thing that can be proven about a scientific theory is that it is false then what does it mean to be committed to a theory Polanyi argues that it is avoiding the question to say that scient [...]


  10. I seldom read a monograph in awe Yet Polanyi s spirit certainly come alive, jumping out from the curves and lines, to proclaim his own, deep rooted intellectual passion I feel myself trembled and almost dare not to continue the pages The reader should not take the book lightly, because the reading action entails witnessing a true calling, however unspecifiable it is This is exactly the tacit moment of sharing the same awe respect of a superior culture So it seems, however reluctantly, I myself i [...]


  11. En un cap tulo central de mi libro Verdad y m todo I defend este concepto personal de experiencia frente al enmascaramiento que ha sufrido con el proceso de institucionalizaci n de las ciencias emp ricas, y veo que M Polanyi sostiene algo parecido Verdad y M todo II P g.399


  12. Polanyi crafted an amazing work here that explores the impossibility of strict objectivity in science and other fields Even though this book is about fifty years old, Polanyi s language is contemporary and easy to understand His concepts to me were revolutionary And although there were gaps, as there always are in revolutions, the book was educational I especially enjoyed his application of tacit knowledge to the written word Yes The scientists speaks on the text


  13. In Personal Knowledge the late Michael Polanyi, a Nobel prize winning Physical Chemist created a tour de force analysis that explores the tacit, subjective nature of thought Polanyi makes a superb case against separating thought into the silos of fact and value This is not a book for the faint of heart, but a careful read will bring many rewards It s a classic, and well worth the work that one must put into it.


  14. Polanyi s book does a good job pointing out the relevance and need for intuitions for the workings of science and in solving the demarcation problem This book is important for people who want to see from the perspective of science as a human endeavor, instead of seeing science as something a robot or trained monkey could perform.


  15. This is a very dense and difficult book to read if you are not a seasoned reader of philosophy Nevertheless it is worthwhile to plough one s way through it and glean what can be had I recommend it only to the experienced reader and wish that I was able to get out of it.


  16. This is a fantastic alternative account of epistemology from the objectivizing non personal accounts which the enlightenment has brought us Polanyi is a must read for Christians who are serious about epistemology Also recommended is Esther Lightcap Meek.



  17. Polanyi s message Science can no longer stand on its value free objectivity Scientists, like most men, bring their values into their work, whether they know it or not.
