This paper is a philosophical investigation of the process of learning. The analysis of learning is a phenomenological one, using the science of essential structures of consciousness as a foundation for addressing the topic of ‘learning how to learn.’ This essay is not meant to be an empirical generalization, nor a data-supported research study. Rather, it is a personal mapping of a particular educational experience. In that respect, the writing of this paper is a fundamentally necessary and appropriate “capstone,” for engaging in this thought experiment has enabled me to more fully understand the importance of the four years that I have spent at Northern Illinois University.
