Eugene (Brent) Young’s work involves intersections between Philosophy, Literature, and Cinema; he focuses on the works of Gilles Deleuze and Maurice Blanchot. His research explores the aesthetic, literary, religious, and philosophical value of paradox. He has written on interpretations of Nietzsche’s eternal recurrence and on Deleuze’s approach to philosophical thinking in distinction from Derrida and Foucault; he is also the primary author of The Deleuze and Guattari Dictionary (Bloomsbury, 2013). His current book project is entitled Deleuze via Blanchot: Cinematic Art as the Eclipse of Power. He teaches courses in the English and Philosophy Departments on topics such as Modern Philosophy, Literature and Politics, Major Authors (Kafka, Shakespeare), Philosophy & Cinema, Dreams, the Meaning of Life, and the Sociology of Art.
