Michael Polanyi on Scientific Authority and his Criticism of Popper and Russell

Leo Baeck Institute Year Book 56 (1):249-268 (2011)
Abstract
This article analyzes, Polanyi’s notion of authority in science and his criticism of Popper and Russell. It uses the history of early genetics and neo-Darwinism in order to examine the fruitfulness of Polanyi's concepts for an understanding of the history of biology. It discusses the responsibility of scientists in influential positions and shows that scientific authority is – as is criticism – indispensable for progress.
