    In conversation with David Cayley on Ivan Illich and the pandemic response

    In conversation with David Cayley on Ivan Illich and the pandemic response

    I talk to David Cayley about Ivan Illich and where the response to the pandemic comes from.

    David Cayley is a Toronto-based Canadian writer and broadcaster, who is known for documenting the philosophies of prominent thinkers of the 20th century - among them, the work of Ivan Illich. Recently, Cayley has been written several powerful works on the Pandemic, including the Prognosis, which was published in Literary Review Canada. He joined me on my podcast to discuss the philosophy of Ivan Illich and how it might be understood in light of recent developments.
