Chomsky-Foucault on human nature: the full video!

Credit: and

EDIT: In a supreme twist that Chomsky and Foucault would have probably decried, the video has been ordered taken down by its copyright holder. For the same fear of reprisal, we can’t post a link to the video or transcript either, but maybe a clever search might do the trick…

Exciting find: a FULLY transcribed and subtitled video of one of the fabled 1971 debate on human nature between Michel Foucault and Noam Chomsky. We’ve had to contend with only watching excerpts of this for years, so it’s great to finally see their various exchanges in a fuller context.
