Getting multiple PhDs

<p>I would love to attain multiple PhDs throughout my life. At least two, at most three. One when I'm about... 30? Another at 40 and the last when I retire. Now, is this possible; is getting a PhD as overwhelming and exhausting as people tend to say?
The disciplines I want doctoral degrees in are philosophy, physics and history. In that order.</p>

<p>Edit: Also, lets assume that the money for the education is not a problem.</p>


<p>I plan to be a student my whole life (with a part time job of course)
So why not? I love learning!</p>

<p>You don't have to be in class or get a degree to learn. In fact, I am learning more on my own just reading papers/books on the topics relevant to my interest than I ever did before. </p>

<p>Also, those fields are completely different so you would have to at least spend a couple of years before applying to get recommendations, do research, and get the prereqs done. It would be better to use the library/internet or just audit upper level undergrad classes.</p>

<p>No amount of additional Ph.D.'s (past 1, of course) is worth the amount of rolled eyes I'll be getting in the future.</p>

<p>If you love learning, do it as a non-matriculant and pick and choose classes to your liking.</p>
