Notes on the video:
This until now rarely seen 15-minute footage is of an interview that was conducted by the Dutch philosopher Fons Elders in preparation for the debate between Noam Chomsky and Michel Foucault, which was broadcasted on Dutch television on Sunday, Nov. 28, 1971. The whole interview was essentially lost for decades and was published in the winter of 2012 for the first time. It is now available as a full-length book under the title of “Freedom and Knowledge.” It includes an excellent introduction by author of “Mad for Foucault,” Lynne Huffer, and additional contributions by Fons Elders.
