Polanyi and the Art of Knowing

My review of Mark T. Mitchell's book Michael Polanyi: The Art of Knowing appears in the new issue of Appraisal, the journal of the Society for Post-Critical and Personalist Studies in the U.K.

Mitchell writes, "Polanyi points a way out of the dark forest of rational scepticism and systematic doubt. He shows us how we might once again speak meaningfully of the good, the true and the beautiful. And he shows us how we might recover an understanding of the importance of the places we inhabit and the persons with whom we live."
