Polanyi Society Membership, Meetings and Electronic Discussion Group

The Polanyi Society is a scholarly professional organization formed in the early seventies; its objective is to promote exchange among persons interested in the thought of Michael Polanyi. Approximately 300 people from across the world receive the printed edition of Tradition and Discovery: The Polanyi Society Periodical. An identical (open access) digital copy of the journal is posted on the Polanyi Society web site at http://www.polanyisociety.org or http://www.missouriwestern.edu/orgs/polanyi/index.html. Issues of the journal (and preceding newsletters) back to 1972 are available to anyone interested in the digital archives on the site. Annual dues are $35 and are paid at the beginning of September each year. The student membership rate is $15/year.

For an online membership form, go to http://polanyisociety.net/register/join-renew.php. For additional information about membership or Tradition and Discovery: The Polanyi Society Periodical, contact the Polanyi Society Treasurer, Charles Lowney (lowneyc@wlu.edu).

The Polanyi Society has a regular annual meeting held in conjunction with the annual meetings of the American Academy of Religion and the Society for Biblical Literature. The AAR/SBL meetings are always in a large North American city in late November. At least one session of the Polanyi Society annual meeting includes presentation and discussion of scholarly papers which are made available to interested members before the gathering. Details about the Polanyi Society annual meeting, as well as any other meetings focusing on Polanyi's thought, are published in Tradition and Discovery and posted on the Polanyi Society web site.

The Polanyi Society sponsors an electronic discussion group. Anyone interested can join the list by sending a request to subscribe to James van Pelt (jvp@ctfolk.com), the moderator for the list.
