This week marked the anniversary of the death of philosopher Michael Polanyi, one of the most significant philosophers for understanding the roots of theology in the twenty-first century.
To mark the occasion, we offer the following introductory reading guide to his most significant works.
We’ve ordered this list in the order that we think the books should be read, and offered a brief explanation of why each book was included. We’ve also included excerpts of most the books via Google Books.
2. Michael Polanyi: Scientist and Philosopher
by William Taussig Scott and Martin X. Moleski
Likely the best biography of Polanyi that sets his work in the context of his life.
