We are eating ourselves to death in many ways, both bodily and
societally. Few activities are as essential to human flourishing as
eating, and fewer still are as ethically intricate. Eating well is
particularly confusing. Conflicting recommendations, contradictory
scientific studies, and the confounding environmental and economic
factors that surround us make choices difficult. Eating "just
right" is complex for the contemporary American, living amid excess
and faced with moral, medical, and environmental consequences that
influence our eating choices. A different eating strategy is
needed, one grounded in our biology but also philosophically sound,
theologically cogent, and personally achievable. Eating Ethically
provides evidence and arguments for more adaptive eating practices.
Drawing on religion, medicine, philosophy, cognitive science, art,
ethics, and more, Jonathan K. Crane distinguishes among the eater,
the eaten, and eating to promote a radical reorientation away from
external cues and toward internal ones. From classic philosophy on
appetite to contemporary studies of satiation, from the science of
metabolism to metaphysics and theology, Crane intertwines ancient
wisdom and cutting-edge scholarship to show that eating well is not
only a biological necessity but also an integral facet of spiritual
and social health. He draws on insights from Judaism, Christianity,
and Islam that promote personal health and social cohesion. Eating
Ethically, grounded in science, tradition, and our internal
necessities, points us toward eating well.
