Charles Taylor, Michael Polanyi and the critique of modernity

pluralist and emergentist directions

Edited by

Charles W. Lowney

This book provides a timely, compelling, multidisciplinary critique of the largely tacit set of assumptions funding Modernity in the West.  A partnership between Michael Polanyi  and Charles Taylor's thought promises to cast the errors of the past in a new light, to graciously show how these errors can be amended, and to provide a specific cartography of how we can responsibly and meaningfully explore new possibilities for ethics, political society, and religion in a post-modern modernity.
