autodidact (ô´to-dì´dàkt´) noun
A self-taught person.
[From Greek autodidaktos, self-taught : auto-, auto- + didaktos, taught. See DIDACTIC.]
- au´todidac´tic adjective

An autodidact is a self-taught person. Throughout history, individuals have sought to master subjects from outside the mainstream of conventional education. Many of these have been self-deluding dilettantes, akin to the autodidact of Jean Paul Sartre's Nausea. However, some have mastered their disciplines and because of their lack of ordinary formation, have excelled and made innovative contributions.

I am not internal linkimpressed by the Ivy League establishments. Of course they graduate the best- it's all they'll take, leaving to others the problem of educating the country. They will give you an education the way the banks will give you money- provided you can prove to their satisfaction that you don't need it.  Peter De Vries (1910-93), U.S. author. The narrator (Joe Sandwich), in The Vale of Laughter, pt. 1, ch. 4 (1967).

"Well, these people have clearly never read Thomas Kuhn's _The Structure of Scientific Revolution_. The only people who ever advance science forward are the people who come from internal linkthe edge, from the outside, usually internal linkamateurs, usually not institutional. The way scientific advance happens is though completely irrational bursts of brilliance. Then they create a scenario of careful research and cross-checked data and slow accumulation. It doesn't happen like that. People are free to dismiss me, I don't even necessarily say they're wrong. The ideas need to be judged on their own merit. If they're saying they can't be internal linktrue because I take drugs, that's like saying 'It can't be true because he's a Jew' or 'It can't be true because he's a homosexual.' These are not sufficient reasons to dismiss anybody's ideas."


You see, what happened in the 60's, the first postwar generation came of age that had been given what was then called a liberal education. When you're given a liberal education you read John Stuart Mill, Rousseau, Voltaire. What this makes you is a social critic. They said, my god, we're financing our own suicide! We don't want tens of millions of 25 year olds asking why we are not following John Stuart Mill's prescription for liberty. They said the universities must be turned into trade schools. Forget Western philosophy, art, and culture. Teach these people data entry, management skills, financial skills, and high tech. And this is what has happened. I think that the idea of universal, public liberal education was... they realized we'll all hang if we proceed along this path, and so they stopped it. And now people are given 6.5 hours of TV a day, the Brady Bunch, all this. Idiot jobs, idiot political choices, and people are completely diverted by... Michael Jordan's father's problems, baby so and so who was carried to term by a internal linkcamel and a contract which is now being debated...

"My education was of the most ordinary description, consisting of little more than the rudiments of reading, writing, and arithmetic at a common day school.  My hours out of school were passed at home and in the streets." Michael Faraday, who had litttle mathematics and no formal schooling beyond the primary grades, is celebrated as an experimenter who discovered the induction of internal linkelectricity.  He was one of the great founders of modern physics.  It is generally acknowledged that Faraday's ignorance of mathematics contributed to his inspiration, that it compelled him to develop a simple, nonmathematical concept when he looked for an explanation of his electrical and magnetic phenomena.  Faraday had two qualitieis that more than made up for his lack of education: fantastic intuition and independence and originality of mind.

What Paul Kammerer would call a series, someone like Henry Louis Gates would call "signifyin'" - it's all about how we play with internal linkperception of events, and this is the link that I make between DJ culture, techno-science, and the art of everyday creativity in a internal linkdigital environment. I'm not really concerned with the "academy" per se - it's one reflection of the illusions of class structure and hierarchy that have clouded any real progressive contexts of criticism and that I think have been an absolute bane to any kind of creativity in American culture for the last decade or so. When theory gets too in the way of culture, it's dead. Period. No comma, no colon, no semi-colon... it's the end of the sentence, and it's time for a new paragraph. Turn the page, close the book, check a different website, 'cause that's when things get really really boring. I think that internal linkyouth culture reflexively understands this.

Part of my goal was to bypass the notion of the "critic" as an "authority" who controls narrative, and to create a new role that's alot more concurrent with web culture: you become the cultural producer and content provider at the same time. It's a role consolidation... Especially when you're in a situation where the pop culture mags are terrible and the art/theory stuff is so out of touch with what's going on... it's internal linktime for a new situation. End the mix tape, stop the CD player, press cancel on that file that was downloading... whatever... I started dj'ing as a conceptual art project that critiqued alot of the absolutely terrible things I see in American media, and the end result was to create my own platform - social sculpture - self as shareware or generative syntax for a new internal linklanguage of creativity, or something like that.

The Universe Is A Green Dragon by Brian Swimme

To understand human language, we need to place ourselves within the context of Earth as a self-organizing internal linkreality.  The Earth taught itself how to create the photosynthetic internal linkprocesses, how to bloom forth with the power of the angiosperms, how to create topsoil; Earth did not learn these things from Mars or the Andromeda Galaxy.  Earth education is self-education.

Humans are engaged in the same dynamic of self-educating reality.  So, here we sit, talking, a further development of the ancient Earth activity of education.  Our situation involves something new - self-reflexion - manifested especially through internal linklanguage, but language itself is just a part of a larger teaching process.  We sit, talking, engaged in the education process of the Earth.
