Somebody missed his home-made project of conceptual standards, and now in a
very very low mood.
Some useful learning about AUTODIDACTISM. It is self-development,
self-learning, and self-education, mastering schooling and formal training.
M. Twain noted: "I have never let my schooling interfere with my education."
Many big minds were autodidacts:
Socrates, Descartes, Avicenna, Lebniz, Herbert Spencer, Nietzsche, Karl
Popper; Michael Faraday, Wallace, Thomas Henry Huxley, Thomas Alva Edison;
Benjamin Franklin, Abraham Lincoln.
One must remember Philosophus Autodidactus, alegorical tale on empiricism
and tabula rasa as a thought experiment, the 12-th century Persian novel,
precursor of the Scientific Revolution and European Enlightenment. (01)
My teachers, who have been awarded Nobel Prizes, liked to repeat:
Learn, Learn, and Learn again.
And keep your spirits up, Pat.
