Respect and Empathy in the Social Scicnce Writings of Michael Polanyi

Tradition and Discovery 35 (1):8-32 (2008)
Abstract
This essay first explains Polanyi’s theory of the evolutionary genesis of humanity’s distinctive calling to strive to be rational. It shows how Polanyi envisioned human rationality as necessarily entailing a natural respect for other people. Finally, the essay shows how Polanyi shapes a method for a critical social seience, which is consistent with his understanding of human rationality
