Chomsky v. Foucualt
This debate demonstrates just how divergent Chomsky's and Foucault's notions regarding an appropriate human society were. Personally I throw in with Foucault. While his "histories" of the asylum, the prison, etc. may not have been the most accurate historical accounts ever written, they've provided a fertile manure from which has grown a better understanding of what were at one time considered unproblematic Enlightenment institutions.
