Epistemophilia (noun) is the love of knowledge; specifically, excessive striving for or preoccupation with knowledge. The scientific (as opposed to philosophical) study of the roots and paths of knowledge is called “epistemics”.
From Greek “episteme" - knowledge, acquaintance with (something), skill, experience, from Ionic Greek “epistasthai“ - know how to do, understand + Greek “philia" - affection, from “philos" loving, which is of uncertain origin.
Used in a sentence:
