Tradition and Discovery 30 (2):24-34 (2003)
The keystone of Polanyi’s epistemology is his idea that tacit knowing integrates subsidiary knowledge and creates personal meaning.

This omission leaves Polanyi with a static universe in which personal knowledge is subsumed under impersonal fields. This calls for further work
