Samuel Hux is a founding faculty member at York. While Professor of English (offering Understanding Poetry, Old and New Testaments, Tragedy, Shakespeare, and the "great books" course Foundations of Western Literature) he teaches more than half his schedule each semester in Philosophy (Introduction to Philosophy, American Philosophy, Aesthetics) and the Western Civilization survey governed by the History and Philosophy Department. He is currently engaged in two lengthy Works in Progress: (1) the revision of selected essays for a proposed collection; (2) a book-length manuscript in intellectual history on the theme of the dissociation of cultivation and ethics in modern western civilization, tentatively entitiled THE GENTILE PROBLEM. Professor Hux wishes to note that "Field of Expertise" below is somewhat misleading--and forbidding--since he has functioned as a generalist: a literary, philosophical, and familiar essayist seeking Virginia Woolf's educated "common reader."
