Biography: 

Benjamin Y. Fong came to Barrett from the University of Chicago, where he was a Harper-Schmidt Fellow in the Society of Fellows and a Collegiate Assistant Professor in the Social Sciences Division. He studies ideology in the forms of religion, psychology, and drugs.

His first book, "Death and Mastery: Psychoanalytic Drive Theory and the Subject of Late Capitalism," which seeks to strengthen the psychoanalytic dimension of first generation critical theory in the hopes of rejuvenating its conception of subjection in late capitalism, was released in 2016 by Columbia University Press. He is currently at work on two book-length projects: an academic monograph tentatively titled "The False Dialectic of Modernity," which will examine the history of the interrelation of psychology and religion beginning in the west in the 18th century; and a trade publication titled "Drugs in the History of Capitalism."
