Ivan Illich on Education

Ivan Illich, whose work is one of the sources of inspiration for the ISSA, talks with Jean-Marie Domenach in Paris in 1972.

The conversation focuses on the myth of Pandora, Epimetheus, and Prometheus, on the replacement of hope by expectation, on compulsory schooling as the “organ of reproduction” of capitalist values, on the need for a policy of consensual upper limits for the applications of technology… up to personal friendship as the foundation of work in the world.
