VIDEO: Noam Chomsky & Lawrence Krauss: An Origins Project Dialogue
Noam Chomsky, who is now 88 years old, began reading political pamphlets in bookshops on the Lower East Side of Manhattan when he was 14 years of age. Thus Chomsky sees history not only from the standpoint of others, but of “being there” and “being other”. He constantly reminds us of the empirical evidence of lived experience. From him we learn about people who have been dismissed, accounts of events that have been redacted, or PR rewritten. He insists that we challenge the officially sanctioned accounts of the political events that negatively position and shape us. And he constantly reminds us to question what we know and what we do not know.
