Author Biography

William Tilleczek, Harvard University

William Tilleczek is a political theorist with broad research interests in politics and ethics.  His dissertation, Powers of Practice: Michel Foucault and the Politics of Asceticism, offers a re-reading of Foucault’s oeuvre centered on the notion of askesis. Forthcoming articles will explore the role of ‘training’ in producing and resisting inequality, in both ancient Greek and contemporary neoliberal contexts.
