Ivan Illich’s Cuernavaca center was transformed into CIDOC (Centro Intercultural de Documentación), a radical think tank and free university that attracted dropouts and intellectuals from around the world, 1966–1976. The center offered intensive Spanish courses and a catalogue of courses on Latin American culture and society. Many students disliked CIDOC, but others found it a stimulating environment for intellectual exploration. Illich spent less and less time with students and devoted himself to research on the issues such as education, medicine, and transportation. Illich’s popular books, such as Deschooling Society and Medical Nemesis, were the results of Illich’s research and seminars that he conducted at CIDOC.
