Etymology : Exoteric derives from Latin exotericus, which is itself from Greek ex?terikos, meaning “external,” and ultimately from ex?, meaning “outside.” Ex? has a number of offspring in English, including exotic, exonerate, exorbitant, and the combining form exo- or ex- (as in exoskeleton and exobiology). The antonym of exoteric is esoteric, meaning “designed for or understood by the specially initiated alone”; it descends from the Greek word for “within,” es?.
