A little Homage to Michel Foucault

I expected that some tv-station or other would show a documentary about Michel Foucault and his work and life on the 25th anniversary of his death, which was yesterday, but I couldn't find even the smallest mention. Somehow I personally feel offended about this as he's someone I truly appreciate and who has been an invaluable help to me. His work has lost nothing of its importance, how could one of the brightest thinkers be forgotten?

This is an excerpt of a dialogue between Michel Foucault and Noam Chomsky, who I admire just as much. (Here's a second part.) They treated each other with so much respect, they listen carefully, there's no harsh interruption. It's a pleasure to watch this!
