About Contact News Giving to the Press. Heinrich Meier. Portulans Jason Sommer. No Chronology Karen Fish. Science, Faith and Society Michael Polanyi. Michael Polanyi 96 pages 5. In its concern with science as an essentially human enterprise, Science, Faith and Society makes an original and challenging contribution to the philosophy of science.
On its appearance in the book quickly became the focus of controversy. Polanyi aims to show that science must be understood as a community of inquirers held together by a common faith; science, he argues, is not the use of "scientific method" but rather consists in a discipline imposed by scientists on themselves in the interests of discovering an objective, impersonal truth.

Polanyi rejects positivism, utilitarianism, and Marxism, and defends freedom as a necessary condition for pursuit of spiritual ideals such as truth, justice, charity, and tolerance.

A more truthful account is needed.
