In the video "Debate Noam Chomsky & Michel Foucault - On human nature [Subtitled]," Noam Chomsky and Michel Foucault debate the concept of human nature. Foucault argues that humans are driven by "natural" desires, while Chomsky argues that humans are capable of acting in accordance with "better" principles. The debate becomes more heated when they discuss the justification for using violence in the pursuit of social justice, with Foucault arguing that it is sometimes necessary and Chomsky maintaining that it should only be used as a last resort.
In this video, Noam Chomsky and Michel Foucault debate the nature of human nature and its implications for society. Foucault argues that human nature is inherently oppressive and that a period of violent dictatorship is justified in order to end class oppression. Chomsky believes that human nature is inherently decent and that a revolution to overthrow capitalism is necessary, but he does not believe that all people should participate in such a revolution.
