The Tacit Dimension
Tacit knowledge is knowledge that cannot easily be expressed or even accessed. For example, knowing how to ride a bike is largely tacit; a book on bike riding may present fundamentals, but nearly everything there is to know about bike riding is experiential. As it turns out, a huge portion of our knowledge is tacit, and this is largely ignored by education and science. Polanyi wrote lectures, which turned into this book, about how science is actually done, and how we actually learn and practice craft.
This is most definitely a philosophy book, but what is offers has so many connections to life and learning. It's quite metarational, and gives a lot to think about for anyone involved in the sciences.
