I'm not sure how productive - there's some tensions between the speech ("Face aux gouvernements, les droits l'Homme") and the 1976 lecture at the College de France that are interesting to work through.

Though I suspect, Martin, our disagreements over whether one seeks the redefine the very notion of right (whether it's possible, or desirable) will continue.
