Alumni News: Ben Fong’s "Death and Mastery" published

Ben Fong’s first book, Death and Mastery: Psychoanalytic Drive Theory and the Subject of Late Capitalism, has just been published by Columbia University Press. British psychotherapist Adam Phillips writes, “To the vexed question of the relationship of psychoanalysis to social theory, Fong brings a distinctive sensibility and tact.  Avoiding the portentousness and unduly ambitious abstract of this now overspecialized field, he has mad the whole subject newly intriguing and wholly engaging.”  Ben received his Ph.D. from the Columbia Religion Department and is currently an Honors Faculty Fellow at the Honors College of Arizona State University.  In addition to scholarly articles, he has contributed to the New York Times.
