5 Kass, Leon R. Hungry Soul: Eating and the Perfecting of Our Nature.
New York Free Press 1994 0029170737 / 9780029170731 First Edition Hardcover Very Good in Very Good dust jacket 
Xviii, 248 pages, illustrations, cloth, DJ, very good. From Publishers Weekly: "Eating, observes Kass, a physician and biochemist who teaches literature and philosophy at the University of Chicago, is a "great paradox. " To preserve life, individuals necessarily destroy life. Yet, he argues, if this urgent, most basic animal necessity is humanized through table manners, hospitality, sharing, good conversation and ritual, eating becomes a means to celebrate and broaden human community, friendship and values. This stimulating, original philosophical inquiry views eating among humans as a key to our place in the natural order and as a manifestation of the "hungry soul" that seeks satisfaction in activities motivated by ambition, curiosity, affection and awe. Kass concludes by arguing that Jewish dietary laws are one example of a code that embodies an understanding of the ethics of eating and a reverence for life. " SR1547C ; 248 pages
