"All Knowledge is either tacit or rooted in tacit knowledge" ( Polanyi, 1996)
It is ver well explained by Polanyi or argued by him that the explicit knowledge we talk about are deeply rooted in tacit knowledge . The explicit knowledge which can easily be communicated depends greatly on the understanding of the individual which is his tacit knowledge . There is a famous say " You can lead the horse to the water but you can't make it drink . " In the similar way , an operator in the factory can be taught to use a machine in a particular way but it depends on his understanding that he does not injure himself . For example : we as students are trying to gain knowledge through the information imparted to us but it depends on the credibility of the individual , how they apply it . So somewhere or the other all knowledge is either tacit or rooted in tacit knowledge.
