Michael Polanyi and the Social Sciences
Poirier, Maben Walter
Bulletin of Science, Technology & Society, v31 n3 p212-224 Jun 2011
In this article, the author attempts three things: (a) to describe the main beliefs of the "continental empiricist" epistemology that dominated the study of the social sciences in North America since the mid 1930s; (b) to speak of the influence of this epistemology on the dominant or mainstream school in the study of politics; and (c) to propose a new-old approach to the study of politics, based on the thinking of Michael Polanyi (1891-1976). (Contains 43 notes.)
