Abstract

Argues that the scientist's personal participation is the discovery and validation of this knowledge forms an indispensable part of science itself. Describes two different forms of knowing: tacit and explicit — tacit is personal, context‐specific and, therefore, difficult to communicate; explicit knowledge, on the other hand, has been codified so it can be transmitted in formal language. Concludes the arguments herein are extremely relevant.
