It's a fictional streetscape we wander, here, a metropolis whose buildings, boulevards, and back alleys are in a constant state of flux. This is every place, and yet, no place at all - a city of dreams and a dream of a city.

Here, we explore the life and work of Ivan Illich and his circle of collaborators. There's no comprehensive index to the articles published, but we invite you to use the Search box, to the left, and to explore the Archive links that appear at the bottom of each page. Comments are welcomed.

New book about Illich

Unless we are mistaken, a book with the title Repensar el mundo con Iván illich, or Rethinking the World with Ivan Illich, has been published recently in Mexico. It is edited, we gather, by Gustavo Esteva, one of Illich's close collaborators. A short passage of the text translated into English has been posted to a Spanish-language website that's devoted to Simone Weil. The publisher is Taller Editorial La Casa del Mago, or "The House of the Magician."

Somewhat related, a full program of the Illich event held last December in Cuernavaca -- El humanism radical de Iván Illich -- is available on the Web, in Spanish.
