Origin of philomath

  • First indubitably attested ante 1643 (perhaps antedated to 1611); from the Ancient Greek φιλομαθής (philomathēs, “fond of learning”), from φίλος (philos, “loving”) + μάθη (mathē) (mathē, “learning”; from μανθάνω (manthanō), manthanō, “I learn”); compare opsimath, philomathematic, and polymath.
