It was a groundbreaking critique of compulsory mass education. He argued that the oppressive structure of the school system could not be reformed but must be dismantled in order to free humanity from the crippling effects of lifelong institutionalization. He wrote a dissertation focusing on the historian Arnold J. Toynbee and would return to that subject in his later years.

Inhe “signed up to become a parish priest in one of New York’s iivan neighborhoods— Washington Heightson the northern tip of Manhattan, at that time a barrio of newly-arrived Puerto Rican immigrants. Inhe traveled throughout South America on foot and by bus. The bishops also started their own rival Catholic party.

As a historian, I saw that it violated the American tradition of Church and State separation. As a politician, I predicted that there wasn’t enough strength in Catholic ranks to create a meaningful platform and that failure of McManus’s party would be disastrous on the already frail prestige of the Puerto Rican Church. As a theologian, I believe that the Church must always condemn injustice in the light of the Gospel, but never has the right to speak in favor of a specific political party.

Despite this display of insubordination and an order from Paul Francis Tannerthen general secretary of the National Catholic Welfare Conferenceforbidding Illich from any official role in the organization’s Latin American bureau, Illich maintained the support of the influential priest John J.

Considine, who continued to push for Illich to have a role in training the Church’s missionaries, personally funding trips to Mexico in order for Illich to scout locations. His real intent was to document the participation of the Vatican in the “modern development” of the so-called Third World. Illich looked askance at the liberal pity or conservative imperiousness that motivated the rising tide of global industrial development.

He viewed such emissaries as a form of industrial hegemony and, as such, an act of “war on subsistence”. He sought to teach missionaries dispatched by the Church not to impose their own cultural values. Kennedy’s Alliance for Progress, the Peace Corpsand countless other missionary efforts bankrolled and organized by wealthy nations, foundations, and religious groups.

Several of the members subsequently continued language schools in Cuernavaca, of which some still exist. Illich himself resigned from the active priesthood in the lates having attained the rank of monsignorbut continued to identify as a priest and occasionally performed private masses. In the s and beyond, Illich traveled extensively, mainly splitting his time between the United States, Mexico, and Germany.

He also taught at the University of Bremen and University of Hagen. Kumarappal notably, his book, Economy of Permanence. While Illich never referred to himself as an anarchist in print, he was closely associated with major figures in left-anarchist circles, notably Paul Goodman and unschooling advocate John Holt.


Goodman is credited in Deschooling Society with having “radically obliged” Illich to revise his thinking, and described with great convivenialidad in Illich’s s interviews with David Cayley:.

I loved Goodman very much, but not from the beginning. Inas ls twenty-six-year-old man newly arrived in New York, I went to a public debate. This strange person arrived and fascinated everybody with his way of presenting himself. I was just then having my first experiences of sitting through cold turkey with neighbourhood kids from Washington Heights, and this guy lllich phrased his proposal that New York immediately decriminalize all substances you can ingest, because otherwise the city of New York convivenclalidad become an unlivable city within the next few years.

He had recently played a major part in getting a law passed which recognized that the state should not interfere with the private activities of consenting adults. Well, I was shocked!

I would not have suspected that within three of four years we would convivencualidad good friends and that during the last part of his life he would spend considerable time with me in Cuernavaca. I consider Goodman one of the great thinkers I’ve known, and also a tender, touching person. Illich died 2 December in Bremen, Germany. His last wish, to die surrounded by close collaborators amid the genesis of a new learning centre he had planned in Bologna, was not realised. The book that brought Ivan Illich to public attention was Deschooling Societya radical critical discourse on lvan as practised in “modern” economies.

Giving examples of what he regards as the ineffectual nature of institutionalized education, Illich posited self-directed education, supported by intentional social relations, in fluid informal arrangements:. Universal education through schooling is not feasible. It would be no more feasible if it were attempted by means of alternative institutions built on the style of present schools.

Neither new attitudes of teachers toward their pupils nor the proliferation of educational hardware or software in classroom or bedroomnor finally the attempt to expand the pedagogue’s responsibility until it engulfs his pupils’ lifetimes will deliver universal education. The current search for new educational funnels must be reversed into the search for their institutional inverse: We hope to contribute concepts needed by those who conduct such counterfoil research on education–and also to those who seek alternatives to other established service industries.

La convivencialidad

The last sentence makes clear what the title suggests—that the institutionalization of education tends towards the institutionalization of convivencizlidad and that ideas for de-institutionalizing education may be a starting point for a de-institutionalized society.

The book is more than a critique—it contains suggestions for a reinvention of learning throughout society and lifetime. Particularly striking is his call in for the use of advanced technology to support “learning webs”:. The operation of a peer-matching network would be simple. The user would identify himself by name and address and describe the activity for which he sought a peer. A computer would send convivencialisad back the names and addresses of all those who had inserted the same description.


It is amazing that such a simple utility has never been used on a broad scale for publicly valued activity. According to a contemporary review in The Libertarian Forum”Illich’s advocacy of the free market in education is the bone in the throat that is choking the public educators.

As he later asserted in After Deschooling, What? Tools for Conviviality was published only two years illich Deschooling Society. In this new work Illich generalized the themes that he had previously applied to the field of education: He wrote that “[e]lite professional groups The result of much economic development is very often not human flourishing but ‘modernized poverty’, dependency, and an out-of-control system in which the humans become worn-down mechanical parts.

Tools for Conviviality attracted worldwide attention. In his Medical Nemesisfirst published inalso known as Limits to MedicineIllich subjected contemporary Western medicine to detailed attack. He argued that the medicalization in recent decades fonvivencialidad so many of life’s vicissitudes—birth and death, for example—frequently caused more harm than good and rendered many congivencialidad in effect lifelong patients.

He marshalled a body of statistics to show what he considered the convivencialixad extent of post-operative side-effects and drug-induced illness in advanced industrial society. He introduced ilich a wider public the notion of iatrogenic disease[24] which had been scientifically established a century earlier by British nurse Florence Nightingale — Others have since voiced similar views.

Illich says that the presence of American’s “do-gooders” is causing more harm than good. Conviencialidad, he suggests that the Americans should stay completely away from Latin America and stay in their homeland where they can at least know what they are doing.
