This inaugural issue leads with a series of essays on an issue of some moment — the pandemic. On Reading Ivan Illich is the theme for this inaugural issue and informs the choice of the articles.
David Cayley has done more than anyone else to draw public attention to the thought and life of Ivan Illich. The theme of this issue of Conspiratio is “Responses to ‘Ivan Illich: an intellectual Journey’.”
This third issue of Conspiratio is devoted to the idea of appropriate scale or proportion. It was a persistent theme in the thought and writings of Ivan Illich from the 1950s on.
