    A Symposium Encounter.Walter B. Mead - 2011 - Tradition and Discovery 38 (2):6-13.
    Participants have known Poteat as teacher or colleague or author over various periods of time and assess him according to these various relationships. Polanyi is given less attention largely because he has been less difficult to understand. Poteat’s approach is the more radical because he attempts to take the implications of Polanyi’s thinking further.

    A Symposium on the Relevance of Michael Polanyi’s Insights to a Reformulated Understanding of Science, Technology, and Society.Walter B. Mead - 2011 - Bulletin of Science, Technology and Society 31 (3):155-159.
