Ivan Dominic Illich (/ɪˈvɑːn ˈɪlɪ/; 4 September 1926 ? 2 December 2002) was a Roman Catholic priest, theologian, philosopher, and social critic. His 1971 book Deschooling Society criticises modern society’s institutional approach to education, an approach that allegedly constrains learning to narrow situations in a fairly short period of the human lifespan. His 1975 book Medical Nemesis, importing to the sociology of medicine the concept of medical harm, alleges that industrialised society widely impairs quality of life by overmedicalising life, pathologizing normal conditions, creating false dependency, and limiting other solutions more healthful. Ilich called himself “an errant pilgrim.”
