philomath \FIL-uh-math\, noun:

A lover of learning; a scholar.  From Greek philos ("beloved," "loving," as in philosophy or philanthropy) + Greek manthanein, math- ("to learn," as in polymath).


It's nothing to laugh about, he says. "Strange things happen in this country -- things that philosophers and other philomaths had never dreamed of."

-- Tomek Tryzna, Miss Nobody
