Re: [-empyre-] Writing and Pattern Flows

Hi Jim,

Polyani's field in this case is philosiphy/science and the goal is a critique of pure rationality (logical positivism) and a recuperation of meaning through myth, art and a spiritual impulse. Not that he wants to break with rationality, but rather integrate it with these other modes of knowing and making meaning. I've found myself increasingly interested in this topic myself as I struggle with the clash of cultures in an interdisciplinary school (art, design, IT) at our university where ideas like these are contested (not that that's necessarily a bad thing).
