Autonomous learning - the capacity to think for oneself - is a cornerstone of Higher Education. The argument I would like to develop is that the capacity for autonomous learning is an acquired habit. Since habitual activities are often regarded as thoughtless and unintelligent - activities that are mindlessly repeated - such a definition might seem, at best, paradoxical. However, if it is accepted that habits are not necessarily unintelligent then there are good grounds to understand autonomous learning as an acquired habit. Having put forward my case for this claim, I should like to present for discussion what I think are its implications.
