During the 1980s, Ivan Illich added another dimension to his thought through the study of Medieval history. In this volume he aims to demonstrate the extent to which the groundwork for the institutions tht characterize our world today were laid in the twelfth century. Topics center on health, housing, school, language and literacy, peace and ethics.
