This book explains how the many diverse topics that concerned him belong together as essential elements in his effort to play physician to the sickness of the modern mind. Using both published and unpublished writings, Prosch critically evaluates Polanyis efforts and examines the value of his work as philosophy.

The book contains a complete bibliography of Polanyis humanistic publications and all of his earlier works.It provides thorough and enlightening orientation both to those issues which Polanyis work addresses and to those issues which his work raises, as well as a superbly clear and (I believe) accurate characterization of the rich philosophic position which Polanyi developed.

Its an excellent orientation for those unfamiliar with Polanyis work, and of essential value for those of us who already are students of Polanyis thought. -- Samuel D. WatsonHarry Prosch is Professor of Philosophy at Skidmore College.
