His biography has remained unwritten partly because his many and scattered interests in a wide variety of fields, including six subfields of physical chemistry, epistemology, economics, patent law, social and political theory, aesthetics, and theology. This long-awaited volume will be the definitive resource on Polanyi and his work.

MEDIA REVIEWS
very informative...The apparently objective description of Polanyi's relationship to religion is one of the special values of this book. * Istvan Hargittai, Structural Chemistry *
The work is triply welcome: It is the first biographical book on Polanyi; its panoramic scope will make more scholars aware of the magnitude of his achievements; and - meticulously researched, most accessible, and replete with fascinating details - the text is of a particularly high standard. * Struan Jacobs, Sophia *
This book will be found valuable both by scholars and by the general reader. s
coherent, congenial, yet comprehensive and compelling * Derry Jones, Chemistry World *
