Summary: Food makes philosophers of us all. Death does the same . . . but death comes only once . . . and choices about food come many times each day. In The Ethics of Food, Gregory E.

This comprehensive collection addresses a broad range of subjects, including the meaning of food, moral analyses of vegetariani ...show moresm and starvation, the safety and environmental risks of genetically modified food, issues of global food politics and the food industry, and the relationships among food, evolution, and human history.
