"Self-taught" redirects here. For the hip hop group, see Self Taught. Autodidacticism (also autodidactism) or self-education (also self-learning and self-teaching) is the education without the guidance of masters (such as teachers and professors) or institutions. Generally, an autodidact is an individual who chooses the subject they will study, their studying material and the studying rhythm and time. An autodidact may or may not have formal education, and their study may be either a complement or an alternative to it. Many notable contributions have been made by autodidacts. Etymology[edit] The term has its roots in the Ancient Greek words αὐτός (autós, or "self") and διδακτικός (didaktikos, meaning "teaching"). Modern education[edit] Autodidacticism is sometimes a complement of modern education.[1] As a complement to education, students would be encouraged to do more independent work.[2] The Industrial Revolution created a new situation for self-directed learners.
