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.

"Videos" from Paris celebration

Recordings of talks given at the colloquium devoted to the life and thought of Ivan Illich held last November-December in Paris under the auspices of Le Club de la Montagne Sainte-Geneviève have been posted to Vimeo. Those talking in the first video, a roundtable, are Jean-Pierre Dupuy, Patrick Viveret, Thierry Paquot, and Serge Latouche. The imagery in these videos consists of still photos only.

Ivan Illich (1) - « Table ronde » avec J-P Dupuy, P. Viveret, Th. Paquot et S. Latouche from CMSG on Vimeo.

To see a listing of all seven recordings made at this event, click here. They may be downloaded at no charge. In one of them, Dupuy discusses the thought of Rene Girard and Illich, a topic he addresses in The Challenges of Ivan Illich. Dupuy, a professor of French and political science at Stanford, has known both men.
