This paper provides a philosophical conceptualisation of how learners engage in entrepreneurial learning from within by focusing on the role of the inner identity and mission of the learner. Klapper and Neergaard (2012) add ‘withness’ to the learning frameworks of EE, but there is hardly any literature discussing the implications of learning from within in this context. Fayolle (2013) calls for investigating how learners learn in order to address the vast differences among audiences in EE, and understand the rationale behind ‘effective didactical design’. This paper adopts a postmodernist perspective to understand the role of self in EE, and draws on the Learning Onion Model for learning from within (Korthagen et al., 2013). A mystagogical perspective is proposed to help learners engage with their inner missions and identities, and improve their core reflection skills, thus, highlighting and inspirational dimension to EE.
