Abstract

If questions about nutritional value are set aside, what purpose does the act of consuming an animal possess? I take this as my central question here because meat-eating is not just an issue of nutrition: as Derrida wrote: ‘and who can be made to believe that our cultures are carnivorous because animal proteins are irreplaceable?’ There is something else going on when an animal’s flesh is consumed.
