Research Assistant at Department of Philosophy of Hacettepe University. I’m studying on a book project about biopolitics. In the first volume of this project I want to collect articles that focus on the philosophical roots of biopolitics. In this regard there are articles on Plato, Aristotle, Aquinas and Augustine, Spinoza, Hobbes, Marx, Nietzsche and Arendt. Some of the contributers are from Turkey. But the chapters on Plato, Augustine and Aquinas, Spinoza and Nietzsche was written by -sequentially- Mika Ojakangas, Lauri Siisiäinen, Peter Gratton and Vanessa Lemm.
