    Polanyi Vs. Kuhn: Worldviews Apart.Martin X. Moleski - 2006 - Tradition and Discovery 33 (2):8-24.
    Michael Polanyi’s work has often been conflated with that of Thomas Kuhn. This article shows that although Polanyi and Kuhn both conceded the similarities in some aspects of their accounts of science, both were critical of the other’s position. The key to a correct understanding of the tensions between the authors and their views is to recognize the clash of worldviews within which their philosophies of science were constructed.

    Accepting Imperfection.Martin X. Moleski - 2013 - Tradition and Discovery 40 (2):12-13.
    “Forms of Atheism” is, despite its title, a plea for modest expectations in the economic and social sphere. Polanyi identifies five kinds of false “gods” who have led our culture astray. Although he criticizes an ideal of progress inspired by the Christian tradition, he affirms the importance of love and praises “the British sense of national brotherhood” as a force for good that derives from “obeying the will of God.” What Polanyi means by “God” is left to the reader’s sympathetic (...)

    Polanyi and Newman: A Reconsideration.Martin X. Moleski - 2014 - Tradition and Discovery 41 (2):45-55.
    The author’s doctoral dissertation on the theological implications of the epistemologies of John Henry Newman and Michael Polanyi operated on the assumption that Polanyi’s work was independent of Newman’s. That assumption was wrong. Polanyi read Newman’s Grammar of Assent twice and took at least five pages of notes on it; he also had a copy of the book in his personal library when he died. He mentioned his reading to a friend, but indicated that he could not quote Newman because (...)

    Restoring Faith in Reason.Martin X. Moleski - 2017 - Tradition and Discovery 43 (2):21-34.
    This article provides an appreciative but critical analysis of the account of humanistic inquiry Thomas Pfau develops in Minding the Modern. Moleski examines various complementary accounts of tacit knowing, and highlights the importance of assent, conscience, and tradition. He critiques Pfau’s account of objectivity, and argues perspectivalism and pluralism are not barriers to reliable knowledge of reality. He concludes with a cursory comparison of the efforts of Pfau, Newman, Polanyi, and Lonergan.
