Hungry Soul by Leon R. Kass

Book Description

The Hungry Soul is a fascinating exploration of the natural and cultural act of eating. Kass brilliantly reveals how the various aspects of this phenomenon, and the customs, rituals, and taboos surrounding it, relate to universal and profound truths about the human animal and its deepest yearnings. "Kass is a distinguished and graceful writer...It is astonishing to discover how different is our world from that of the animals, even in that which most evidently betrays that we too are animals--our need and desire for food."--Roger Scruton, Times Literary Supplement "Yum."--Miss Manners
