We spend so much time and money on food, but do we really spend enough thought on food? Do we ever say there must be something wrong with cheese that has an expiration date 8 months from now? Martin Cohen uses examples from the great philosophers of the past not to tell us what to eat, but how to think about what we eat. The result is a fascinating look at food that will greatly alter our conceptions of what we put into our body and the industry that sells it to us. Cohen is a Visiting Research Fellow in Philosophy at the University of Hertfordshire (UK) as well as Editor of The Philosopher, one of the world's oldest philosophical magazines.
