Louis H. Swartz Reflections on Shils, Sacred and Civil Ties, and Universities
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
This review essay, concerning three collections of Shils’ essays published in 1997, focuses on Shils’ assertion of the importance of charisma or the sacred in the ties that bind a secular society together and enable it to function as it does, asks why Shils did not accept Polanyi’s views about intellectuals, and refers to aspects of the sacred attributed to universities and to our academic traditions.

David Kettle Cartesian Habits And The ‘Radical Line’ Of Inquiry
abstract | view |  rights & permissions | cited by
Cartesian habits of the imagination, thought to be abandoned when Michael Polanyi’s theory of knowledge is embraced, may persist unrecognised and distort interpretation of this theory. These habits are challenged by a ‘radical’ reading of Polanyi which consistently finds a paradigm for knowledge in lively research. It is argued that this is rooted in an intention which is at once and irreducibly receptive and critical, and which gives rise to the ’radical line’ of inquiry. In this setting, Cartesian dualism arises when quieter knowledge, falsely represented to itself, becomes instead a paradigm for knowledge.
