John F. Haught Why Do Gods Persist?: A Polanyian Reflection
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
Recent evolutionary interpretations of religion can be illuminating. However, by failing to take into account what Polanyi calls the “logic of achievement” they end up attributing to impersonal segments of DNA the personal striving that underlies religious existence.

Richard Gelwick Heuristic Passion And Universal Intent: A Response To George R. Hunsberger
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
Despite Hunsberger’s apology for Newbigen’s use of Polanyi, Newbigen in The Gospel in a Pluralist Society reverses Polanyi’s essential elements of heuristic passion and universal intent. The outcome is a misunderstanding of the common ground and differences between science and theology and a stifling and narrowing theology of cultural plurality. In contrast, Charles McCoy’s federal theology and understanding of Polanyi shows an approach of openness yet grounding in the biblical God present in the believed-in realities of global life.

Joseph Kroger Can Theology be Tacit?: A Review Essay on Personal Catholicism
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
Martin Moleski summarizes Newman’s Grammar of Assent and Polanyi’s Personal Knowledge and finds remarkable similarities in their epistemologies, particularly their concepts of “illative sense” and “tacit knowledge”. There are, however, problems (particularly in Catholicism) with Moleski’s interpretation of the theological significance of the “ illative” or the “tacit”, as well as ambiguities in the way he relates faith to theology.

John V. Apczynski How “Catholic” Is Personal Catholicism?
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
This review essay argues that the emphasis on the personal commitments sustaining all knowledge, while permitting some fruitful insights into structural parallels between Newman's and Polanyi’s epistemological positions, finally is not fully satisfactory for developing a theological program. Moleski’s effort to develop such theological insights may be advanced if it were supplemented by incorporating a more detailed structural analysis of the illative sense and of tacit knowing.
