Ivan Illich argues that conviviality is needed so an individual's energies are used under direct personal control, and the use of tools is responsibly limited. Conviviality is the opposite of industrial productivity, and means the creative intercourse of ideas between individuals. This leads to individual freedom. If conviviality is reduced in a society, no amount of industrial productivity can saitisfy the needs of the human population.About the Author:
