Philomath, being nothing to do with arithmetic

Philomath (pronunciation: FIL-oh-math) is defined as a lover of learning, from Greek philos (‘beloved’, ‘loving’, as in philosophy or philanthropy) + Greek manthanein, math- (‘to learn’, as in polymath). It is similar to but distinguished from philosophy in that ‘sophia’, the latter suffix, specifies ‘wisdom’ or ‘knowledge’.
