This is a transcription of the debate between Noam Chomsky and Michel Foucault. Though the title seems general enough, the debate is highly specialized, and probably only understandable to those trained in both modern and postmodern (post-structuralist) linguistics and postmodern philosophy, especially social thought. The video of the debates can also be found on various sites around the internet; I think youtube/google video has the full debate. Kind of confusing, since Chomsky speaks in English and Foucault in French. Two powerhouses though, that's for sure. ( )
