E’ stato appena pubblicato dalla casa editrice Routledge il volume “Handbook of Food Ethics” curato da Mary C. Rawlinson e Caleb Ward.
Sulla pagina web dedicata l’editore descrive così il volume:
“While the history of philosophy has traditionally given scant attention to food and the ethics of eating, in the last few decades the subject of food ethics has emerged as a major topic, encompassing a wide array of issues, including labor justice, public health, social inequity, animal rights and environmental ethics. This handbook provides a much needed philosophical analysis of the ethical implications of the need to eat and the role that food plays in social, cultural and political life. Unlike other books on the topic, this text integrates traditional approaches to the subject with cutting edge research in order to set a new agenda for philosophical discussions of food ethics.” (Sito web Routledge)
