    eBook ukrbank.pro ô Personal Knowledge PDF/EPUB ½ personal free, knowledge kindle, Personal Knowledge PDF/EPUBThis 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 HeideggerPerhaps 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 Sounds abstract but unless anybody has actually met George Bush in person we have all made individual personal commitments to accept as true that George Bush is currently President of the United States for example Polanyi shows that everything we superficially consider to be an incontestable fact is really a personal decision by each one of us to believe somebody else something we have heard or read or our own senses none of which can be considered irrefutab

    eBook ukrbank.pro ô Personal Knowledge PDF/EPUB ½ personal free, knowledge kindle, Personal Knowledge PDF/EPUBPeriodically I return to this great book not only to sueeze every last drop of wisdom from it but also to simply enjoy its prose Organizationally the book is discursive yet coherentTHE COHERENT WHOLEThe plan of the book is four fold1 We notice that even in the most objective sciences we have to make subjective judgements The situation relies even on our subjective selves the less formalized a discipline becomes2 This observation spurs a long meditation on how our objective standards and subjective skills go together The melding of the two of the subjective and objective is what Polanyi calls Personal Knowledge3 This meditation allows us to attack the uestion How can we be confident in our knowledge seeing that it relies on our finite and error prone selves? The answer is strangely perhaps that though our judgements might be erroneous we nevertheless feel compelled to make personal commitments to making our worlds

    eBook ukrbank.pro ô Personal Knowledge PDF/EPUB ½ personal free, knowledge kindle, Personal Knowledge PDF/EPUBThis 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 otherThe core of it think harder about things science isn't uite 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 need to operate on to know thingsIt's a remarkable challenge and it's a pity Michael Polanyi has been taken up by the intelligent design cr

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 eually 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
