Taking Food With a Pinch of Salt
The popular philosopher is back with a fascinating discussion about what we put on our tables and into our stomachs. In The Virtues of the Table he argues that our choices about what we eat involve every aspect of human nature: creative, emotional, social and sensuous. Julian Baggini asks whether what we consume can help us understand something essential about what it is to be human.
