tacit knowledge. A term used by philosopher of science Michael Polanyi to describe the kind of background knowledge that people possess but may be unable to articulate. Polanyi argued that this kind of knowledge, which is often ignored by philosophers, is essential to science and many other fields. Tacit knowledge is usually gained through participation in a community, and it is often linked to “knowing how” as opposed to “knowing that.”
