    Abstract

    This work aims to inquire the relation between biopolitics and freedom in the thought of Michel Foucault, particularly in the last phase of his life (1978-1984). Here we see how his encounter with ancient philosophy allowed him to experience the practice of philosophy: the work of self formation that the greek called askesis. Very important for this objective is the use of techne tou biou (technology of self). I try to demonstrate that: this new way of practicing philosophical askesis evokes Foucault’s ethical resistance to modern relations of power and knowledge (biopower and biopolitics) and open the possibility of contemporary practices of freedom.
