Michel Foucault would have been 88 this week

In celebration of what would have been legendary French philosopher Michel Foucault's 88th birthday this week, we would like to share The Lost Interview. Published on March 20, 2014 on YouTube.

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 book under the title of "Freedom and Knowledge."
