If we wish to increase the therapy of animals, Dominique Lestel argues, we needs to recognize our evolutionary impulse to devour them and we needs to extend our worldview to determine how others eat meat ethically and sustainably. the placement of vegans and vegetarians is unrealistic and exclusionary. Eat This Book calls instantaneously for a renewed and energetic safety of animal rights and a extra open method of meat consuming that turns us into liable carnivores.

Lestel skillfully synthesizes Western philosophical perspectives at the ethical prestige of animals and holistic cosmologies that realize human-animal reciprocity. He exhibits that the carnivore's place is extra coherently moral than vegetarianism, which isolates people from the area by way of treating cruelty, violence, and conflicting pursuits as phenomena open air of lifestyles. Describing how meat eaters think completely―which is to assert, metabolically―their animal prestige, Lestel opens our eyes to the important relation among carnivores and animals and carnivores' real appreciation of animals' life-sustaining flesh. He vehemently condemns manufacturing unit farming and the negative footprint of business meat consuming. His target is to recreate a kinship among people and animals that reminds us of what it skill to be tied to the world.
