Two of the twentieth century's most influential thinkers debate a perennial question.
In 1971, at the height of the Vietnam War and at a time of great political and social instability, two of the world's leading intellectuals, Noam Chomsky and Michel Foucault, were invited by Dutch philosopher Fons Edlers to debate an age-old question: is there such a thing as "innate" hum

I haven't finished this book and probably will not get a chance to read the other essays in it for a while now. All the same, the transcript of the debate (if you could really call it that) between Foucault and Chomsky is interesting for a number of reasons. The first is that Foucault doesn't really get going at all and this is due to the problems of the medium. Television seems like it really ought to be quite an impressive medium - whereas it is a really pathetic waste of time. My favourite pa ...more

خيّب هذا الكتابي أملي به.
أردته مدخلًا إلى عالم الكاتبين خاصة (فوكو) لأني على معرفة جيدة –إلى حدٍ ما- ب (تشومسكي)، وأردته بحثًا في (طبيعة الإنسان) تحديدًا كما أوحى العنوان. خاصة بعد أن فشلت في الاستماع باستمتاع وتركيز إلى نصّ المحاضرة المتوفر على اليوتيوب بسبب تعدّد اللغات وسوء الترجمة.
لكنّي للأسف وجدته حديثًا متشعبًا لا يشبع باحثًا، ولا يُغني دارسًا، ولا يمتع قارئًا، بالإضافة إلى أنّه بعيد عن عنوانه.
وختامًا، وقعتُ في فخٍ أعرفه- للأسف- وهو قراءة محاضرةٍ مفرّغة أو حوارٍ مفرّغٍ دون تحرير يحوّل ا

As it turns out the two titans had a televised discussion in Sweden in 1971. That's some pretty esoteric TV. The transcript is an intellectual snack -- like a philosophy pizza bagel -- that looks great on the box but turned out kind of mushy in the microwave.

Both Chomsky and Foucault are illuminating writers: you can jump into one of their books and feel like you're super smart and you're finally getting all the answers. For this reason both have given me fits of adulation at various times. So f
A pretty good window into the thought of Noam Chomsky and Michel Foucault. I'm not sure this volume would stand alone very well, but it certainly clarifies the work of each by showing them in contrast, and thus makes a great companion to each man's writings.

This the is the transcript of a debate held by Dutch television in 1971, in which Chomsky (speaking in English) and Foucault (in French) responded to the questions posted by moderator Fons Elders regarding human nature and political justice.

الحوار لعبة ؛ الشخص المُحاوِر يحدّد كلامك وما ستقوله وكأنّهُ يضعكَ في قيد ، أو لنقلْ في لحظة الحوار تصادر الحقيقة وبمجرّد بدء الكلام تَكُونُ قد دخلت في اللعبة ، لذا من يشاهد المناظرة سيجد أن فوكو لم يكن مرتاحًا وفي بعض الأحيان كان يصحح أسئلة " إلدرز" خاصّة عندما سألهُ : لماذا أنت مهتمّ بالسّياسة ؟
ومع كلّ هذا كانت آراؤه - بالنسبة إليّ - أكثر إقناعًا ؛ فهو دومًا ينفي فكرة الثّابت والمستقرّ سواء عندما تحدّث عن الإبداع أو بجزئيّة العدالة وهذا أمر مريح نسبيًا ، كذلك حفرياته العميقة في الأبعاد التّا

أعتقد أن تسمية الكتاب بـ "الطبيعة الانسانية" لايعكس محتوى الكتاب فعليًا، الكتاب يحوي على مناظرة بين ميشيل فوكو ونعوم تشومسكي يتحاورون في قضايا سياسية واقتصادية ولغوية، الكتاب لايناسب القارئ العادي الغير متخصص

يبدأ هذا الكتاب بالمناظرة الشهيرة لكل من نعوم تشومسكي وميشيل فوكو والتي جرت في هولندا في نوفمبر 1971 بإدارة المفكر الهولندي الشهير فونس إلدر، وكانت النقطتان الرئيسيتان في الحوار "سؤال الطبيعة الانسانية- والسياسة"

أتاح الحوار مساحة للنقاش عبر الجغرافيات الفكرية والسياسية، والذي أبدى وجهات النظر المختلفة لكل من تشومسكي وفوكو تبعاً لاختلاف نهجهم ( اللغوي-الفلسفي ) والسياسي في ذات الوقت- والذي يلمس جلياً في أطروحاتهم الفكرية.

كان هناك اتفاق جزئي بين تشومسكي وفوكو بما يتعلق بسؤال "الطبيعة الانسانية" و

This book was my re-introduction to Noam Chomksy (I studied his linguistics work in grad school) and my first introduction to Michel Foucault. Chomksy was not asked to speak very often in the U.S and, if you are to believe his supporters and his own comments, he was actively prevented from speaking or publishing his work in the U.S in the past. This is the first time this dialogue has been available in the U.S. Based on a television program recorded in France for Dutch television in the early se ...more

بلا شَك أن تشومسكي وفوكو هما من أعظم الفلاسفة في الفترة المعاصرة وهذا الكِتاب يعبر عن ذلك بوضوح في عمق الطرح لعدة مسائل ناقشاها في المناظرة الشهيرة والتي كان هذا الكتاب تلخيصاً لها -ولحسن الحظ أن المناظرة موجودة على اليوتيوب ومترجمة للعربية- . انبجس هذا النقاش عن ثلاثةَ عيون رئيسية الأولى كانت عن الطبيعة البشرية وفيها عرض تشومسكي وجهة نظره التي تأثرت بشكل أو بآخر بطبيعة عمله "فيلسوف لغويات" فرسخَ المفهوم الغريزي في فهم هذه الطبيعة وضرب مثالاً بقابلية الطفل لتعلم أي لُغة بشرية لأنه يتعرف عليها كل ...more

I watched the one hour debate on Youtube and read few papers analyzing and arguing about the two thinkers' opinions.

It's an interesting debate. I think Chomsky has a point, but that Foucault understands Chomsky more than Chomsky understanding him.

For me, Foucault wins philosophically, but he gets us nowhere. At least Chomsky is more practical for our current societies.

مقاربة جميلة بين نعوم تشومسكي وميشيل فوكو، فيها جانب رائع حول توظيف المؤسسات ومفهوم العدالة والسلطة والقوة.
امتعتني المناظرة كثيراً، خاصة بعد ان اتبعتها بمشاهدة الجانب المنشور من المناظرة في اليوتيوب.
لطالما احببت القراءة لفوكو وطريقة تناوله التاريخ والسلطة، دائماً تجد لديه جانباً جديداً ومستحدثاً وغير مطروق

Noam Chomsky and Michel Foucault are described in this book by Fons Elders as ‘tunnellers through a mountain working at opposite sides of the same mountain with different tools, without even knowing if they are working in each other’s direction.’ Human Nature: Justice vs. Power is the title of the debate, which originally aired on Dutch television in 1971.

The title is taken from the stance that both men arrived at (or continued to entertain) into in the late stages of their

Este libro es la transcripción de un debate televisado en los años setenta. Se estructura en dos partes:
La primera, sobre las teorías de estructura del lenguaje, me ha resultado bastante dura y llena de tecnicismos. He de decir que soy un auténtico profano en la materia y de ahí la dificultad, pero aún así, leída con atención, aunque no he logrado posicionarme por ninguno de los dos debatientes, si he captado lo interesante que puede llegar a ser el tema.

استمتعت جدًا جدًا بهذا الكتاب الشديد الأهمية. الكتاب يحوي المناظرة التي تمت بين تشومسكي وفوكو بهولندا، ثم حوارات مع تشومسكي وفوكو منفصلة. هذه المناظرة نموذج فريد لما وصلت إليه نماذج رائدة في الفكر الغربي، وتمت المناظرة بلغتين في دولة تتحدث لغة ثالثة!
تقريبًا اتفقت مع تشومسكي في كافة أرائه وكل يوم أزداد إعجابًا به بشكل لا يصدق... أعتقد أنه فعلا من أهم مثقفي هذا الكوكب، وميزته الكبرى في تمكنه من الخروج عن الإطار وموضوعيته المذهلة، وعدم تمسكه بأيدولوجية معينة بشكل يُحسد عليه.

It is now widely conceded among post-modern/post-structuralist circles that Foucault broke the back of linguist-political scientist Noam Chomsky in this televised debate on Dutch television. Perhaps this conception further contributed to Chomksy's disdain with the French intellectual community entire in subsequent years. Nevertheless, regardless of one's political/philosophical disposition, this is an endlessly fascinating debate, between two thinkers working as "tunnellers through a mountain wo ...more

Chomsky is succinct and clear. To me his thoughts on epistemological limits are the most interesting. If you've read any of his other activist works, you likely will not find anything new here. Foucault has some interesting ideas but his discourse is a bit nebulous and abstract for my taste.

Foucault has one particularly interesting discussion on the rise of the 'specialist' intellectual (as opposed to the 'universal' intellectual). In other words, a divergence from the 'renaissance man' model o

Although probably not the best introduction to Foucault and Chomsky's thought (though Chomsky does tend to follow a more linear position), this debate is more indicative of their respective approaches to the social sciences. As Chomsky posits a kind of communitarian society or set of cosmopolitan social relations, Foucault questions the institutions that individuals are embedded within as a kind of power structure bent on maintaining the status quo and controlling those elements of society in "n ...more

A really interesting and short read combining two great minds. It discusses the concept of human nature as innate property or social construct, offering very interesting arguments. It also discusses the concept of justice vs power and I found this section particularly powerful and exciting to read!

I had only a cursory knowledge of Chomsky from a linguistics class and Foucault from research presentations by other students during my MFA studies. This book was engaging and has sparked my interest in going deeper in my studies of their theories. Despite the dense thinking of the two, the book is a relatively quick and easy read. The chosen works that follow the interview transcription are interesting individually and seem to create an interesting dialogue. I only take issue with the inclusion ...more

هذا الكتاب مدخل جيد لفكر كلا المفكرين ومحرض على قراءة المزيد من أعمالهما. أي أنه لايغني من جوع أبدا. إلا أن مايميزه بالطبع عرض الآراء المختلفة لقضية واحدة في وقت واحد. كانت أقرب إلى مقابلة للمفكرين منها من مناظرة. أفكار فوكو مرتبة جدا ومقتضبة في المناظرة بعكس تشومسكي الذي عرض العديد من الأفكار التي لم تكن واضحة تماما حتى بالنسبة له حتى أنه يذكر في مواضع عديدة من المناظرة أنه ليس قادرا على شرحها أو تفسيرها.

This is a great read-- both Foucault and Chomsky express their ideas clearly and, maybe more importantly, they are excellent at pointing out the exact differences between their theories. Chomsky sums it up around page 132. If you're interested in linguistics and politics, innate vs. experience-learned language, this is a good read. Also, Foucault has an interesting piece on Police and their role in society.

Recommends it for: nerds
By far the most valuable part is the first, which consists of the actual text of the (trilingual, although all translated into English) debate. The second and third parts, which contain some of the key formulations on the topics of language and power by Chomsky and Foucault respectively are good, but are better found in their contexts elsewhere.

The political aspects of the debate and other readings in this edition were more interesting to me than the human nature aspects. Fairly dense reading and the debate format for reading probably doesn't play well. I'd be thinking "OK, I understand their arguments. Uh, no. No I don't really." Still Chomsky is Chomsky and that's reason enough to read this.

A good single-volume contrast between the two. The debate itself it probably the best part, but the other sections are worth reading, if for no reason other than to contrast the approaches of two such influential figures.

Read this for the Chomsky half. Foucault is a poor communicator.

What I liked: Chomsky's take on why Watergate was big news. Lots of other little bits in what he said.

What I didn't like: Chomsky continually being urged to draw political science conclusions from his work in linguistics.

In my opinion, Chomsky won! Really, there isn't much debate here, but there is some insightful reading about humanity. Besides the debate from the 70's being transcribed there are also writings from both Chomsky and Foucault. A very interesting read.
