Autodidactic Press is dedicated to two propositions:
  1. That lifelong learning is fundamental to living a full and interesting life.
  2. That the learning necessary to gain competence in a job or career is far, far more important than how or where it is acquired.

SELF-UNIVERSITY WEEK PRESS ROOM

Self-education is the essence of genuine learning. Self-education provides the vitality that enables us to turn information into knowledge and to use it in such a way that it adds meaning to life. Indeed, without the dynamism of self-education, we fail to develop our own interests to the degree that they become driving forces in their own right. When our motivation arises from internal sources the value of lifelong learning becomes readily apparent to us.

Adult learning is more than alternative education, self-help, self-study, or training. Self-directed inquiry can free you from the cultural traps of today’s postmodern world. When you think for yourself, you take control of your life. Intellectual ability and critical thinking soon become substitutes for paper credentials. You'll enjoy a higher quality of life, make smarter career choices, and begin to see ways to better our society. Simply stated aggressive learning is the most practical guide to a passionately rewarding life.
