Chomsky vs. Foucault

Michel Foucault“It seems to me that the real political task in a society such as ours is to criticise the workings of institutions, which appear to be both neutral and independent; to criticise and attack them in such a manner that the political violence which has always exercised itself obscurely through them will be unmasked, so that one can fight against them.”

Noam Chomsky and Michel Foucault, (2011) [1974]. Human Nature: Justice vs Power. The Chomsky-Foucault Debate (London: Souvenir Press), Edited by Fons Elders, p. 49.
