Ivan Illich
b. 9-4-1926; Vienna
d. 12-2-2002; Germany

Ivan Illich, philosopher and Roman Catholic priest, was a critic of the institutions of contemporary western culture and their effects on the provenance and practice of education, medicine, work, energy use, and economic development.

Ivan Illich quotes ~
• “At the moment of death I hope to be surprised.”
• “Effective health care depends on self-care; this fact is currently heralded as if it were a discovery.”
• “Modern medicine is a negation of health. It isn't organized to serve human health, but only itself, as an institution. It makes more people sick than it heals.”
• “Healthy people are those who live in healthy homes on a healthy diet; in an environment equally fit for birth, growth work, healing, and dying ... Healthy people need no bureaucratic interference to mate, give birth, share the human condition and die.”
• “The public school has become the established church of secular society.”
• “School is the advertising agency which makes you believe that you need the society as it is.”
• “Most learning is not the result of instruction. It is rather the result of unhampered participation in a meaningful setting. Most people learn best by being “with it,” yet school makes them identify their personal, cognitive growth with elaborate planning and manipulation.”
• “School divides life into two segments, which are increasingly of comparable length. As much as anything else, schooling implies custodial care for persons who are declared undesirable elsewhere by the simple fact that a school has been built to serve them.”
• “In a consumer society there are inevitably two kinds of slaves: the prisoners of addiction and the prisoners of envy.”
• “Homo economicus was surreptitiously taken as the emblem and analogue for all living beings. A mechanistic anthropomorphism has gained currency. Bacteria are imagined to mimic "economic" behavior and to engage in internecine competition for the scarce oxygen available in their environment. A cosmic struggle among ever more complex forms of life has become the anthropic foundational myth of the scientific age.”
• “We must rediscover the distinction between hope and expectation.”
• “The re-establishment of an ecological balance depends on the ability of society to counteract the progressive materialization of values. The ecological balance cannot be re-established unless we recognize again that only persons have ends and only persons can work towards them.”
• “The household has become the place where the consumption of wages takes place.”
• “I was recently told, 'You're a liar!' when I said to somebody I walked down the spine of the Andes. Every Spaniard in the sixteenth, seventeenth century did that. The idea that somebody could just walk! He can jog perhaps in the morning, but he can't walk anywhere! The world has become inaccessible because we drive there.”
• “Any industrial product that comes in per capita quanta beyond a given intensity exercises a radical monopoly over the satisfaction of a need.”
• “Leadership does not depend on being right.”
• “Carry a candle in the dark, be a candle in the dark, know that you're a flame in the dark.”

Johannes Itten
b. 11-11-1888; Switzerland
d. 5-27-1967

Expressionist painter Johannes Itten, known for his color studies, was also a teacher associated with the Weimar Bauhaus from 1919-1922.

Johannes Itten quotes ~
• “If you, unknowing, are able to create masterpieces in color, then unknowledge is your way. But if you are unable to create masterpieces in color out of your unknowledge, then you ought to look for knowledge.”
• “Learning from books and teachers is like traveling by carriage, so we are told in the Veda. But, the carriage will serve only while one is on the highroad. He who reaches the end of the highroad will leave the carriage and walk afoot.”
