Hey folks,

I feel odd being the only one posting to the forum, but perhaps this doesn't matter! Anyway, I have a double bill of Ivan Illich reflections at Stranger Worlds this month and next month. The first one, Facing Books, picks up from an essay from In the Mirror of the Past, for which I remain eternally grateful to be referred to by the people gathered here.

The transition from the book to the computer as the dominant metaphor for mind

The second one runs in a different direction from Illich's thought about the relationship between empire and grammar. I'll try to remember to pop by and drop a link to that when it runs.

With unlimited love,

Chris.

Hi Chris,

Thanks for sharing the link to your text. I will take the time to read it properly this weekend. I am glad you came across In The Mirror of the Past. I just finished the translation to Portuguese, which will be published in October. It is a remarkable book.

If you remember to pop you next article up I would be glad to read it.

All my best,

Neto

Hi Neto,

Thanks for your comment. I gained an enormous amount from reading In The Mirror of the Past, which I feel was the 'missing link' in my Illich reading. I'm so grateful to the folks here for putting me in touch with it.

Since you have requested it, I will share another short Illich reflection from Stranger Worlds shortly. Thanks for taking an interest!

With unlimited love,

Chris.
