Sophophobia is the fear of learning. It come from the Greek word sophia, meaning "wisdom" or "knowledge". It is considered a specific phobia. It is related to epistemophobia or gnosiophobia (both meaning fear of knowledge).

One common causes of sophophobia is the belief that learning causes lack of success in the life. In more remote cases, partially educated parents can cause children to have sophophobia.

Sophophobia isn't necessarily caused by education, but by the fear of attending school (scolionophobia). Medical symptoms include parched mouth, breathlessness, panic attack, trembling, nausea. People who are sophophobic sometimes ask about not going to school.
