Ivan Illich
Born in Vienna in 1926, Illich grew up in south-central Europe. He studied natural science, philosophy, theology, and history.

During the 1950s he worked as a parish priest among Puerto Ricans in New York City, then served as vice-rector of the Catholic University of Puerto Rico. During the 1960s he founded centers for cross- cultural studies, first in Puerto Rico then in Cuernavaca, Mexico.

During the 1970s his Centro Intercultural de Documentación (CIDOC) became an internationally respected focus for intellectual discussion. In the 1980s he divided his time between Mexico, the United States, and Germany.

He held an appointment as Visiting Professor of Philosophy and of Science, Technology, and Society at Penn State. He also taught at the University of Bremen. He died in 2002.

Quotations from Ivan Illich:

 A good educational system should have three purposes: it should provide all who want to learn with access to available resources at anytime in their lives; empower all who want to share what they know to find those who want to learn it from them; and finally, furnish all who want to present an issue to the public with the opportunity to make their challenge known.

Ivan Illich, (1926 - 2002)

 Learned and leisurely hospitality is the only antidote to the stance of deadly cleverness that is acquired in the professional pursuit of objectively secured knowledge. I remain certain that the quest for truth cannot thrive outside the nourishment of mutual trust flowering into a commitment to friendship.

Ivan Illich, (1926 - 2002)

 Learning from programmed information always hides reality behind a screen.

Ivan Illich, (1926 - 2002)

 There is no greater distance than that between a man in prayer and God.

Ivan Illich, (1926 - 2002)

 In a consumer society there are inevitably two kinds of slaves: the prisoners of addiction and the prisoners of envy.

Ivan Illich, (1926 - 2002)
Tools for Conviviality 

 Together we have come to realize that for most men the right to learn is curtailed by the obligation to attend school.
