Shadow Work (Open Forum Series). By the way, in subsequent works, Illich said he never meant to imply that schools be abolished or had no place, but if this is true, then 'Deschooling Society' was a most unfortunate title. Anyway, for all that, I still HIGHLY recommend this book, if only because it makes us think about things we often take for granted.

Here--lightly edited--is what I wrote myself about this book in 1987:

***************************************

PREVIOUS READINGS:

OF BOOK: In 1981.
OF AUTHOR: Tools for Conviviality, Energy and Equity, Deschooling Society, Medical Nemisis, Gender.
ON SUBJECT: Some foreshadowing of some themes (particularly the disabling effect of professions) in earlier Illich, otherwise none.

QUOTE(S): Too many, but a couple samples:

"Formally taught mother tongue professionally handled according to abstract rules had begun to compare with and encroach upon the vernacular. This gradual replacement and degradation of the vernacular by its costly counterfeit heralds the coming of the market-intensive society in which we now live."(p56)

"All over Latin America, people find it easier to perform the paid task assigned to them than to grasp what the boss means by trabajo. For most toiling unemployed in Mexico, desempleado still means the unoccupied loafer on a wellpaid job, not the unemployed whom the economist means by the term."(p101)

GENERAL IMPRESSION: Great. Transcendant.

REMARKS: This book is five separate essays, all connected by the author's concerns, which radiate from the tension between subsistence and market activities. The market bids fair to take over every area of life, swamping the vernacular in language, personal relations, and getting a living. Illich claims these are working drafts that will be subsumed in a book within three years. The time has come and gone, but no such book has appeared. Of course, he wrote 'Gender', but its focus was as the name implies, and very little of this material adumbrates that book, or is contained in it.

Illich is continuously brilliant, which is both a delight and a danger. For one must translate much to more mundane language and leaven this heavily idea-laden stuff with enough examples to make it digestible. The concepts are difficult. Or, more precisely, they depend on long chains of precise, almost incantatory restatements of a central idea in different historical, social, and intellectual contexts. The net effect of this is very convincing when presented in the brilliant clarity, confident flow, and linguistic inventiveness of the author's prose, but it almost defies paraphrase, and so reveals itself as more art than science. Yet what he says has the heft of truth, and it forms a considerable explanatory system that offers us some hope.

*******************************************

That was then, this is now, twenty-five years later. The thing is, Illich is more like Plato than Marx. Nobody ever tried to mount a Platonic revolution. (OK, OK: let's not get into how the Marxist revolutions were big mistakes, politically and logically.) Illich is sui generis, and should be enjoyed in that intellectual netherworld where the understanding of bad things brings a kind of pleasure. Read the book. Hell, read ALL the books: the language alone is worth it. It would help, though, if you could transport yourself to the early 70's...
