Buccaneer Scholar

Author James M. Bach writes of being “dedicated to a certain lifestyle of mind. I call it intellectual buccaneering. I call myself a buccaneer-scholar. Just as the original buccaneers would not submit to authority in their pursuit of worldly riches, neither do us modern buccaneers yoke ourselves to authority in the pursuit of a rich education. We construct truth and meaning for ourselves.” His book, Secrets of a Buccaneer-Scholar, describes “…how I found success in a highly technical field without the benefit or burden of a conventional education.”
