I don't think I'm overstating the case when I suggest that psychology is one of the most fertile fields of endeavor for radical lifelong learners. For one thing, there is an intense and abiding popular interest in virtually every aspect of the subject. For a learner who can do responsible "library" research and can write like a pro can create an entire library of popular books on the history and personalities of psychology. Or if you are into computer science, you can mine all the data out there being created in the name of cognitive neuroscience. It goes on and on like that. I will write more here on the subject at a later time.

For most learners, the immediate goal is to capture the essence of psychology and, especially, the sub-topic you find most intriguing at the moment.
