Summary Beginning and ending with comprehensive and stimulating discussions of learning theories, "The Passion to Learn" includes fourteen case studies of autodidactism in informal learning situations. These wide-ranging case studies reflect the inherent diversity of autodidactism, yet four common themes emerge: emotional/ cognitive balance; learning environment; life mission; and ownership of learning. The final chapter addresses the implications of autodidactism for educational theory, research, philosophy and psychology.
