9780316127165: Eating Animals

Jonathan Safran Foer spent much of his teenage and college years oscillating between omnivore and vegetarian. But on the brink of fatherhood-facing the prospect of having to make dietary choices on a child's behalf-his casual questioning took on an urgency His quest for answers ultimately required him to visit factory farms in the middle of the night, dissect the emotional ingredients of meals from his childhood, and probe some of his most primal instincts about right and wrong. Brilliantly synthesizing philosophy, literature, science, memoir and his own detective work, Eating Animals explores the many fictions we use to justify our eating habits-from folklore to pop culture to family traditions and national myth-and how such tales can lull us into a brutal forgetting. Marked by Foer's profound moral ferocity and unvarying generosity, as well as the vibrant style and creativity that made his previous books, Everything is Illuminated and Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, widely loved, Eating Animals is a celebration and a reckoning, a story about the stories we've told-and the stories we now need to tell.

Descrizione libro Little, Brown Company, United States, 2010. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. 170 x 106 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Like many young Americans, Jonathan Safran Foer spent much of his teenage and college years oscillating between enthusiastic carnivore and occasional vegetarian. As he became a husband, and then a father, the moral dimensions of eating became increasingly important to him. Faced with the prospect of being unable to explain why we eat some animals and not others, Foer set out to explore the origins of many eating traditions and the fictions involved with creating them. Traveling to the darkest corners of our dining habits, Foer raises the unspoken question behind every fish we eat, every chicken we fry, and every burger we grill. Part memoir and part investigative report, Eating Animals is a book that, in the words of the Los Angeles Times, places Jonathan Safran Foer at the table with our greatest philosophers.

Descrizione libro Condizione libro: New. Publisher/Verlag: Back Bay Books | Wie viele junge Menschen schwankte der Autor lange zwischen enthusiastischem Fleischgenuss und Vegetariertum hin und her. Als Familienvater dann wurden ihm die moralischen Dimensionen der Wahl seiner Nahrungsmittel mehr und mehr bewusst. Aus Literatur und Philosophie und seiner eigenen Suche nach der Wahrheit zieht er überraschende Schlussfolgerungen darüber, warum wir essen was wir essen. | Jonathan Safran Foer spent much of his teenage and college years oscillating between omnivore and vegetarian.
