Summary

Michael Polanyi was an eminent physical chemist, economist, and philosopher. This book explains how the many diverse topics that concerned him belong together as essential elements in his effort to play physician to "the sickness of the modern mind." Using both published and unpublished writings, Prosch critically evaluates Polanyi's efforts and examines the value of his work as philosophy. The book contains a complete bibliography of Polanyi's humanistic publications and all of his earlier works.

"It provides thorough and enlightening orientation both to those issues which Polanyi's work addresses and to those issues which his work raises, as well as a superbly clear and (I believe) accurate characterization of the rich philosophic position which Polanyi developed. It's an excellent orientation for those unfamiliar with Polanyi's work, and of essential value for those of us who already are students of Polanyi's thought." -- Samuel D. Watson

Harry Prosch is Professor of Philosophy at Skidmore College.
