In attempting to find an autobiographical account of some great thinker's mental development, at which stages primarly between childhood and adolescence, I fortuitously happened upon "Autobiography" by John Stewart Mill. In which he narrates so well, each successive phase of his intellectual development. In fact, a significant portion was commited to detail of both his early education and his adult self-education. I can say the substance of Mill's autobiography has principally satisfied a part of my search, as to how a proper thinker, from youth to adulthood, might come about. I strongly recommend
If you want to know something ask. Even though im mostlikly going to lie to you ;)
