OBSERVATIONS ON THE CHOMSKY-FOUCAULT DEBATE

Comrades (and non-Comrades)!

Just few remarks on the interesting debate between American linguistic Chomsky and French philosopher Foucault.

In part two, Foucault exposes his postmodern theory of dynamic truth (not to be mistaken for the Marxist dynamic theory of truth).
Chomsky at the same time tries to defend his static vision of "harmonist Capitalist legal framework" — which allegedly does not entail the spirit of class struggle — and end up suggesting that the "objective bases for truth" can be found in Capitalism.
In brief, both the intellectuals prove themselves unable to grasp the concept of dialectical materialism and its application on a theory of moral truth.
For a broader understanding on the matter, read my article/pamphlet MARX'S LABOUR THEORY OF VALUE AND THE HUMBUG OF LIBERAL ACCOUNTANCY (Davide Ferri). In particular, have a look at "Part III: a personal contribution to the Marxist theory of truth".
For my general stance on Marxism-Leninism — the most widespread "version" of Communism — read my articles on Marxism-Leninism and Stagism/frontism.
Enjoy this important collection of Chomsky-Foucault insights and humbug!

C.de Ferri
