About this product
- DescriptionMuch of what we know we cannot say. And much of what we do we cannot describe. For example, how do we know how to ride a bike when we can't explain how we do it? These abilities, which we are unable to articulate, were labeled tacit knowledge by chemist and philosopher Michael Polanyi. This book analyzes the term, and the behavior, in detail.
