Thinking themselves liberated forever from an eccentric, the opportunists who were only lukewarm friends failed to show up. Others took the trouble. During the funeral dinner, Grimod appeared in flesh and blood, giving the lie to the news. Then, sitting at table, he carried on the revelry with the faithful. The only real faux pas he committed was to draft a pamphlet entitled The Advantages of Good Living over Women. But every There are so many reasons to anoint 25 December as the celebration of feasts, the pretext for banquets. The establishment of other occasions would make up for the rarity of commemorations.

Thus would the emblematic moments of philosophy begin to take shape: the melons that figure in Descartes dreams, the apple that taught Fourier the theory of Attraction, or the omelette that was Condorcets undoing. All transcendence is dismissed in favour of a will to self, serving as a gnomon of the real. There is a greater risk of alienation with any recourse to the outside or the beyond. In any case, it is not surprising that independently of his text and of the multiple interpretations given it, it is to Ludwig Feuerbach that we owe the celebrated, man is what he eats.

In his anonymous review of Max Stirner he writes: Follow the senses! Where the senses take over, religion and philosophy come to an end. Elsewhere, he states that the body is the foundation of reason, the site of logical necessity, and that the world of the senses is the foundation and condition of reason and intelligence.

It was from his pen that definitive writings on the religious, on religion and its multiple forms, first appeared. The sacred is dissected, analysed and reduced, like a sauce. Feuerbach also developed a new sensualist positivity that derives more or less from a French materialist, then English sensualist, tradition. A modernity is taking shape that Nietzsche would soon inherit, and then pass on to our century. Food and sustenance became materialist principles for an art of living without God, and without gods.

There has not really been a science of the mouth as a pathway to an aesthetics of the self since Nietzsche urged us to take note If we have to be cognizant of the approaches taken by Nolle Chatelet, Jean-Paul Aron or Jean-Franois Revel, we also have to note just how silent contemporary thought is on the central idea.

By the end of his History of Sexuality, the structures of the essential love, pleasures, sexuality and the body had been highlighted. After the appearances of the social machinery for excluding difference and producing normality, he moved on to the most secret but most exciting of mysteries. Finally a genuine Nietzschean concern for the essentials emerged. In The Use of Pleasure, dietetics is described as something we might call an art without a museum.

It is read as a way to stylize a freedom, a logic of the body at the same time as an apology for its mastery. A genealogy of dietetics isolates medical care as a foundational principle: health is the aim of the dietician. The texts in the Hippocratic body of work should be read on this subject, and followed up with Galen.

The evolution of this concern marks a progressive autonomy of mobility. The alimentary regime becomes a fundamental category through which human behavior could be conceptualized. It characterized the way in which one managed ones existence, and it enabled a set of rules to be affixed to conduct; it was a mode of prolematization of behavior that was indexed to a nature which had to be preserved and to which it was right to conform. Regimen was a whole way of living. There is no innocent dietetics. It advises us on the will to be and to become, on the archetypical categories of a life, a thought, a system or a work.

Hence our interest in travelling this path among doctrines and books through the history of philosophy, to arrive at our ideas in an oblique and unfamiliar manner. Food is like Ariadnes thread, saving us from kicking our heels or getting lost in a labyrinth. The art of eating is art in fine. Foucault writes: the practice of regimen as an art of living was. It shows that there can be a science of the particular as a stairway to the universal. Food as an argument that can penetrate the real.

It is, in the end, a stratagem for the construction of the self as a coherent work of art. The singularity that it authorizes and the elaboration of the self that it permits have established as proverbial a BrillatSavarin aphorism. In his Physiology of Taste, Charles Fouriers charming brother-in-law writes: Tell me what you eat, and I shall tell you who you are.

The first has just scratched something in the notebook where he regularly maintains a gastronomic commentary inspired by these banquets. One is about the aphrodisiac qualities of wine in which a red mullet has been drowned, and the other is on butter from Montpellier, which he noted on his Diploma of Medicine. Hegel was wrong to write of Diogenes that we have only anecdotes to relate [about him] and of the Cynics that they are worthy of no further consideration in philosophy. Cynical philosophy is possessed of a resolute will to say no, to flush out the conformism of customary behaviour.

The Cynic is the emblematic figure of the authentic philosopher defined as the bad conscience of their age. The Cynical aesthetic of Diogenes is an antidote to this drift toward obscurantism; it is a will to lucidity. The demand of the Cynics is for everyday life to be shaped into an improvised but sober and pure form, purged of the dross and affectations of civilization.

They want to sap confidence in the ideals that are the principles of illusion: the sacred, convention, custom, passivity. This demand is supported by a positive project of experimenting with a natural life as the condition of possibility of an aesthetics of the self, of a salutary pedagogy of Diogenes, that Socrates gone mad, would no doubt have accepted the invitation of Montaigne for whom our most great and glorious achievement is to live our life fittingly to create his own life.

His drive is architectonic: better the enjoyment of a life under the sign of pure joy, of simple pleasure, than the despair of an everyday life of repetition, of the same. To an interlocutor who said to him that life is an evil, Diogenes replied: Not life itself, but living ill. The key to the theoretical edifice of the Cynics is the affirmation of the absolute superiority of the natural order over all others. Civilization is a helpmate of perversion: it filters out positive innocence and crystallizes the corruption of the real, transformed into a hideous object around which gravitate prohibitions, scandals and complexes.

Artifice is to be banished. The project of Diogenes is the return to a state of nature and nutrition is marked by this desire: In their theory and daily practice, the Cynics actually put into question not just the city, but society and civilization as well. Their protest is a generalized critique of the civilized state. It arose in the fourth century with the crisis of the city, and one of its major themes is the return to a savage state. In negative terms, it is the denigration of city life and the refusal of the material goods produced by civilization. In positive terms, it is an effort to rediscover the simple life of the first men who drank spring water and fed on acorns they gathered or plants they reaped.

Foodstuffs are a stake in this aesthetics of negation. To the consensus of the cooked, which governs nutritive custom, Diogenes opposes an unbridled alimentary nihilism, distinguished above all by the rejection of fire, of Prometheus as the symbol of civilization. The first principle of the Cynical dialectic is the raw. The barbarization of the Cynics the expression comes from Plutarch uses omophagy as the basis of the deconstruction of the system of values on which civilization rests. Marcel Detienne asks: What, in fact, is omophagy, but a way of refusing the human condition as it is defined by the Promethean sacrifice and imposed by the rules of conduct prescribed by the use of the skewer and the cauldron.

By eating raw meat. Detienne sees in this concern a commitment to the deconstruction of the dominant anthropology model. Time and again the anecdotes about Diogenes testify to his desire to learn from animals dogs, obviously, but also horses, lions, mice, fish, birds and grazing animals.

If we are to believe the stories passed down by Theophrastus, Diogenes opted for the ascetic life, the renunciation of the easy pleasures of civilization, after watching a mouse running about, transforming itself in his eyes into a model of wisdom. In this mimicry, Diogenes will not be satisfied with his bloody flesh. Diogenes Lartius writes that he even saw no impropriety. Moreover, according to right reason, as he put it, all elements are contained in all things and pervade everything: since not only is meat a constituent of bread, but bread of vegetables; and all other bodies also, by means of certain invisible passages and particles, find their way in and unite with all substances in the form of vapour.

In acting this way, Diogenes knows what he is doing he ceases to be a man and bases himself on his animality. At the same time he introduces the seeds of an apocalypse in a civilization that does not tolerate cannibalism other than in its ritualized forms or as the only solution to a lack of food. Nowhere but in Diogenes is anthropophagy a considered act in the realm of the immanent. Tolerated, encouraged and supported when it is part of magical, religious or ritualized criminal eating, cannibalism is integrated into the multiplicity of social modalities, assuaging vengeance after tribal warfare, juridical sanction Tartars concerned for the rights of Crusaders deceived by their wives while they were travelling to Jerusalem , a solution to get around the want of nutrition.

But from the point of view of a social nihilist, it seems that the allelophagy of Diogenes is unique, without antecedent or descendant. Diogenes taste for blood does not exclude a practical vegetarianism. Diogenes Lartius recounts the philosophers experiment with human flesh. We do not know if he succeeded in overcoming his repugnance in this regard, but even if it did take place the experiment did not become a habit. It was rather a happening in the Greek city.

The anecdotes handed down about Diogenes reveal him as a greater fan of olives and wild berries than leg of human. The Cynical eulogy on the simple life could be easily accommodated to the simple frugality of life under the Hellenic sun. On numerous occasions Diogenes set himself up as a peaceable gatherer of fruit and roots. He drank fresh spring water from fountains, and the corners of his mouth glistened more often with bright, clear water than with provocative haemoglobin.

According to Diogenes the provision of food is simple: nature provides enough produce for us to be content with gathering. He repudiates the kind of evolution that leads from improvisation to planning, from wandering to settling down, from the nomadism of grazing to the sedentary life of breeding animals. He places himself prior to civilization, before the choice of habitat that restricts walking, the freedom of the journey. To gather your food is to condemn yourself to the imagination, to submit to chance and to refuse security. May I not, asks the Cynic, make the food of my choice the easiest procurable?

Dio Chrysostom reports that Diogenes scorned those who would pass by a spring when thirsty and move heaven and earth to find where they could buy Chian or Lesbian wine; and he used to say that such persons were far sillier than cattle, since these creatures never pass by a spring or a clear brook when thirsty or, when hungry, disdain the tenderest leaves or grass enough to nourish them.

In this way he practised a healthy life, a precondition for longevity. A happy life on earth is possible through economizing on the useless and luxurious. The satisfaction of natural and necessary desires the Epicurean imperative paves the way for a naive joy, a pleasure in being.

In fact, men are unhappy because they require honeyed cakes, unguents and the like. Water is the symbol of Diogenes asceticism. Simplicity is the foundation of alimentary truth. He says: I get enough nourishment from apples, millet, barley and vetch seeds, which are the cheapest of the legumes, from acorns cooked in ashes and the fruit of cornel berries. Let us take spring water for our drink, bread for our food, and salt or cress for seasoning.

That was how I learned to eat and drink from my teacher Antisthenes, not that these aliments are to be despised rather that they are better than the others and more likely to be found on the path to happiness. Diogenes attacks the prejudice that says actions aimed at the satisfaction of a desire or the acquisition of a pleasure should take place behind closed doors.

The Cynic initiates a politics of the displayed and exhibited body, as opposed to one that is hidden and shut away. Here again the desire for excess confirms the pedagogic character of Diogenes. Hence he did not hesitate to masturbate in public and to retort to those whose conscience he offended: I only wish it were as easy to relieve hunger by rubbing my empty stomach.

Masturbation, copulation, why not nutrition? Totally shameless, he brought nutrition out of confined areas and placed it in the public space before the scandalized eyes of model citizens, who were accustomed to hiding away their meals as taboo rites. That of Diogenes is related to nourishment. There are several traditional versions of the way the philosopher took leave of the world. One claims that he finished with life by voluntarily holding his breath: in other words, mastery.

Another states that he was the victim of a dog in a dispute over a raw octopus. According to the latter version he won the fight with the dog and succumbed to indigestion after consumption of his booty, in other words, punishment for the transgression of alimentary rules unless it is a way of giving weight to the Cynical practices of the master. Plutarch reports the facts in this way: Diogenes ventured to eat a raw octopus in order to put an end to the inconvenience of preparing cooked food. In the midst of a large throng he veiled his head and, as he brought the flesh to his mouth, said, It is for you that I am risking my life.

Shortly before dying, he asked that after his passing he be thrown into the outdoors without a burial, where he would be prey to wild beasts, or that he be tipped in some ditch and covered with a little dirt. When you consider how passionately Antigone fought to prevent her brothers body from being left for the carrion birds to defile and feast on and how great was the horror of an unburied body, you can see the extent of the transgression that the philosopher desired.

The eater of raw animals, Diogenes was to be eaten raw by animals. Animal among the animals. True to himself, then: even in death he continued to make food of all meat, and meat of all food. Consumption, digestion, an infernal couple that proves the truth of the eternal return of things under the sign of the alimentary: nourishment as an argument for the eternal cycle. In his diligence in merging ethics and aesthetics, in forging his existence into a work of art deriving from his pure will, Diogenes founded a logic of the use of the self where the mouth is the orifice of truth and meaning in spite of the silence demanded by every gastronomic operation.

Taking nourishment rises to symbolic status and is integrated into the Cynical, nihilist enterprise. Lucian of Samosata had his Cynic say that his aspirations are. He responds to those who object: This. Raw meat, the provocative taste of blood, the call to cannibalism, a frugal life, and meals taken publicly on the agora all testify to a powerful drive to nihilism a negative moment supported by an ascetic will, a positive moment within the logic of Cynicism.

From this point of view nourishment has the function of illustrating the claims of nature, of furnishing immanent arguments: it expresses the refusal of one world, that of artifice, at the same time as the desire for another, that of simplicity. Diogenes and his octopus show that there can be no innocent dietetics. If an emblematic figure were needed to represent gastronomic self-denial, the first person chosen would be Jean-Jacques Rousseau.

In the same way, if the word senseless were to be used to mean devoid of senses and sensation, then that would be the word for the citizen of Geneva. He puts up with sustenance because it is the only way to stay alive; otherwise Rousseau would certainly turn up his nose at all food without much trouble. We know about this philosophers obsessive critique of modernity and his own times, and of his corresponding predilection for a natural humanity that is nothing less than mythical.

His Discourse on the Sciences and the Arts would be a worthy addition to any collection of obscurantist writings, with its critique of commerce, of manners, of luxury, of intellectual activities, of philosophy and generally of anything to do with culture from near or far. The printing press, the art of perpetuating the extravagances of the human mind, falls victim to Rousseaus sharpest critique, and he denounces it for the awful disorders [it] has already caused in Europe. Virtue resides in simplicity, manual work, poverty and ignorance: the beautiful time, the time of virtue for each People was the time of its ignorance.

The idea will make headway. It is succinctly put; before long it will become a slogan. With Rousseau, a kind of ressentiment in thought takes shape. Progress in the arts is proportional to the decadence of the city.

Eliminate the useless, bring about what is needed: Sparta versus Athens. To complete the portrait, Rousseau signs his name to the stupidest slogan ever: Man is naturally good,5 the necessary correlation to which is Nature as all that is fertile, rich and true. Should we be surprised to read, in such a philosophy, a principled critique of gastronomy? Of course not. His whole oeuvre is proof of the authors fundamental powerlessness vis--vis any Gay Science, including the alimentary one. His justification of roots is worthy of the Spartan fanatic. Stew becomes the typical decadent dish.

His taste for Spartan militarism is not clouded by the shadow of a doubt. Rusticity is the prime virtue of the bellicose. The basic thesis that will spread so far and wide is that nature wanted to keep [us] from being harmed by science. Rousseau develops a spartan theory Nietzsche would call it socialist, or Christian of food. As a socialist gastrosopher, Jean-Jacques is so thoroughly imbued with populism that you might think you were reading the standard plebeian argument on the question of food.

The luxury of the bourgeoisie and towns is the reason for the poverty of peasants and the countryside: Gravy is necessary for our cooking; that is why so many sick people lack broth. We must have liquors on our table; We must powder our wigs; that is why so many poor people have no bread. Everyone in the French Enlightenment, apart from Voltaire, was obsessed with this idea. The archetypal principle in the Discourse on the Sciences and the Arts is that Everything beyond physical necessity is a source of evil. Nietzsche would be overjoyed; here is a slogan of JudaeoChristian austerity being picked up by emerging socialism.

Eating is an imperative for survival, not for enjoyment. Commonplace interpretations will soon have to deal with axioms like, One must eat to live, not live to eat.

Appetites for thought: philosophers and food

And watch out for the sin of gluttony! Civilization has suppressed the natural in us, but it is not clear how to find simplicity again, or how to know what is a natural life or healthy food. In the hypothetical state of nature man fed himself correctly because he trusted his intuition, which would never deceive him.

In this mythical time the productions of the earth provided him with all the necessary support, instinct led him to make use of it. But evolution will occur. Rousseau points to changes in human make-up, modifications to behaviour, new uses for limbs or foods. Now, why would that be? The height of trees, which prevented him from reaching their fruits, the competition of animals that sought to eat these fruits, and various other impediments force humans to adapt, which gives rise to agility, strength and vigour.

The harshness of the seasons, the disparity of climates and geographic and geological imperatives are spurs to initiative. People living near rivers invent hooks and fishing and make themselves masters and owners of watercourses, lakes, ponds and seas. They became fishermen and icthyophagous. In forests they made for themselves bows and arrows, and they became hunters and warriors. Lightning, a volcano, or some happy accident acquainted them with fire.

In order to demonstrate his argument, Rousseau forgets this. There is no doubt that for the Swiss thinker evolution can be read in an alimentary fashion; from gathering to fishing and hunting, from the raw to the cooked, from berries to fish and meat first raw, then cooked. As one way of eating succeeds another, modes of behaviour change along with them. An alimentary genealogy of the real. Struck just as dumb about why a perfectly good and pristine Nature is condemned to evolve towards imperfection and evil, Rousseau sketches a hypothetical picture of the origin of civilization.

Nomadism gives way to sedentary life, the family replaces solitary individuals. The group is born, and with it a new approach to food. Men become instrumental in hunting, women stay at home looking after children and doing the cooking. With this primitive division of labour, the male continues to be occasionally nomadic and the female is condemned to an absolutely sedentary life. Feelings evolve, language makes its appearance; rational organization and intersubjectivity have their embryonic beginnings.

Inequality looms. A tragic turn is taken with the invention of metallurgy and agriculture. The first forged tools allow for the cultivation of vegetables or roots around the dwellings. The role of food in the Rousseauian economy of the real is not insignificant. Activities pertaining to food that vital necessity fall under a caste system involving the men who work the land.

While the tool is made in one place, in another, with the help of the very same tool, someone is producing the wherewithal for survival. Some are in a position to produce more than enough. The desire for excess is the foundation of inequality. The wish for abundant food introduces the ferment of decomposition into history. The fear of nutritional lack is its negative principle. An economy based on scarcity would not have this kind of problem. The logic of lack leads to compensation through overproduction, which must be managed, from which arises property due to stockpiling.

Hunger is therefore the driving force of the real. It is hunger that leads animals to fight and tear each other apart. It is hunger that leads people to complicate a previously perfect existence. From wild fruits gathered straight from the hedgerows and ditches to vegetables produced in great numbers and stored, here is the whole trajectory that leads from wandering to putting down roots.

The food of the wanderer is simple, healthy and natural and tends towards naivety, while that of the sedentary life is complicated, artificial and unhealthy and tends towards pointless elaboration. Rousseau never tires of opposing these two ways of thinking in his desire to revive the diet of our origins. This is the whole point of his bitter critique of gastronomy, his science of superfluity, uselessness and luxury, his argument about decadence and the perversion of taste.

He will go as far as to write: it is only the French who dont know how to eat, since so special an art is required to make dishes edible for them. The answer is simple. Knowing how to eat is plain rustic consumption: only consume food that requires no or at least the minimum of preparation. To illustrate this proposition, Rousseau contrasts the meals of a financier and a peasant. Here The only transaction that may be tolerated is that between the producer and the consumer. We do not know what the moneyed gentleman had for dinner, but at least we can imagine it when, one morning, Emiles tutor asks this question of his favourite pupil: Where shall we dine today?

Next to that mountain of silver which covers three quarters of the table, and those beds of paper flowers which are served on mirrors with dessert? Amidst those women with great skirts who treat you like a puppet and insist that you have said what you do not know? Or, rather, in that village two leagues from here with those good people who receive us so joyfully and give us such good custard? It is worth far more for what it represents than what it is: the concern for refinement, for harmonious composition.

So while Voltaire invites his regular correspondents to visit him to sample a truffled Ferney turkey, tender as a squab and fat as the archbishop of Geneva, partridge pt, trout with cream sauce and fine wine,17 Rousseau sings the praises of dairy products, fruit and vegetables. As for the settings for meals, he leans to the rural, surrendering to the joys of the picnic. The ideal place for having a meal would be near a.

For Rousseau, there are no formalities when it comes to guests and staff: Each will be served by all. He invites the passing peasant on his way to work with his hoe over his shoulder. Now the Garden of Eden is becoming communal. The philosopher does not exclude the possibility of being invited to local weddings: It would be known that I like joy and I would be invited. Plebeian to the core, Rousseau writes in his Confessions: I do not know.

If I am given milk, eggs, salad, cheese, brown bread, and table wine I am sufficiently entertained. He expands on this idea in the Julie; or, The New Helose, where he says: In general, I think one could often find some index of peoples character in the choice of foods they prefer. The Italians who live largely on vegetables are effeminate and flaccid.

You Englishmen, great meat eaters, have something harsh that smacks of barbarity in your inflexible virtues. The Swiss, naturally cold, peaceful and simple, but violent and extreme in anger, like both kinds of food, and drink The Frenchman, flexible and changeable, consumes all food and adapts to all characters. In his desire to control reality, the philosopher is thinking of developing an external code, which, varied according to circumstances, could put or keep the mind in the state most conducive to virtue. The theory is located in Emile where he elaborates on this technique of nutrition as an invitation to a new, healthy sociality where the dross of decadent civilization is eliminated.

Careful to theorize a pedagogy that his decision to put his five children into welfare would not have allowed him to practise, Rousseau begins by vaunting the merits of breastfeeding by the mother, or any other woman provided she is healthy. Milk is the perfect food. Do we need to go into its symbolism? I dont think so. Nature sees to the needs of the infant, and in the females of any species nature changes the milks consistency according to the age of the nursling. Peasant women are preferable, because they eat less meat and more vegetables than do city women. This vegetable diet appears to be more beneficial than injurious to them and their children.

When they have bourgeois nurslings, they are given boiled beef in the conviction that soup and meat both produce better chyle in them and result in more milk. I by no means share this Its analysis demonstrates it. Milk from herbivorous females is full of qualities that outshine milk from carnivorous females. It is sweet, healthy and beneficial. In this apology for the milky way, Rousseau sings the praises of curdled milk. In support of this, he relies on travel stories reporting the existence of peoples who are entirely nourished on dairy foods.

And finally, in the stomach, milk curdles and becomes solid. Rousseau is always on the lookout for proofs in science, and he writes that the rennet used for curdling comes from substances originating in the stomach muscle. The proof lies in milk being a food, and in addition being the simplest and most natural of foods.

Rousseau will not find better; everything else is a substitute. On his plate, the citizen of Geneva is particularly fond of dairy foods. He admits to a delicious snack with the dairy products from the Jura: grus and crace, waffles and gingerbread as well as two plates of cream. Excellent vegetables, eggs, cream, fruit; those are her daily fare. The advantages of a backhanded misogyny. A healthy palate is a simple palate; mens versus womens. He is against strong and powerful flavours that are only enjoyed through force of habit. He is also against mixed or combined dishes.

The miracle food and the emblem of the pure, the healthy and the true is milk. Everything else is corrupt: Our first food is milk. We get accustomed to strong flavours only by degrees; at first they are repugnant to us. Fruits, vegetables and herbs, and finally some meats grilled without seasoning and without salts constituted the feasts of the first men. The refusal of salt implies the refusal of the technology required for its production, therefore the refusal of civilization, which is in fact a Rousseauian obsession. An unhealthy palate is a composed or refined one.

And we can see that in the eyes of the philosopher composed means everything that is not used in its natural form.

Appetites for Thought by Michel Onfray from Reaktion Books

Wine, of course, and fermented liquors are among the products of civilization fermentation, distillation, drying. Far too many processes for food. The use of alcohol is a civilized rather than a eudemonistic practice: We would all be [teetotallers] if we had not been given wine in our early years. If this is not for their health, it is for their character. It is an old argument, for which Pythagoras provides the model. Still trusting in science, Rousseau looks for arguments for vegetarianism in the area of physiology.

The way that our teeth, intestines and stomachs are put together proves the correspondence of the body to non-carnal food. Here Rousseau makes an elementary error of logic, specifically one of causality. If food produces the body and our very being, as the Genevan asserts several times, one can deduce that it is because it is vegetarian that a given animal has such a physiology, and not the inverse. Noting the same teeth and intestines in both frugivorous animals and humans, Rousseau concludes that we are related to herbivores and pacifists to boot. Rousseaus equation is a simple one: carnivorous warriors versus pacifist vegetarians.

In his genealogy of civilization, he goes so far as to turn the passage from frugivore to flesh-eating into the passage from the state of nature to civilization: For since prey is almost the sole subject of fighting among carnivorous animals, and since frugivores live in continual peace with one another, if the human species was of this latter genus, it is clear that it would have had a much easier time subsisting in the state of nature and much less need and fewer occasions for leaving it.

Rousseau maintains an embarrassed silence on this point. One more proof of Mans natural vegetarianism is that vegetable-eating species give birth less frequently than those that eat meat. Humans are among the longest to carry their young, thus proving their collusion with herbivores. If, according to Rousseaus argument, natural actions are good because the dynamics of instinct must be trusted, how can the existence of people who eat raw flesh be explained?

In Diogenes is the only player who is an apologist for nature but does not commit the logical blunder. He justifies cannibalism and the consumption of raw flesh that are alimentary practices at the origins of our humanity.

We think of it as natural, that we have a right to want what we want and to achieve it, that what we want is who we are. If to be American is to want, or more precisely, to want more, this poses a challenge to the concept of sustainability and provides an obstacle to any attempt to change behaviors associated with over consumption.
