Theory, Rationality, and Relativism

Tradition and Discovery 20 (3):16-28 (1993)
Abstract
This essay returns to the Azande tribe of Africa, discussed by Polanyi (in Personal Knowledge) and others, in order to rethink the issues of rationality and irrationality and of essentialism and relativism, and to consider what these issues mean in our actual lives as daily we make epistemological and moral judgements
