This course will explore how taking nutrition seriously would change key ideas about how we understand ourselves and our place in the world. Some themes: “Forget ‘I am’” -- We never eat alone; “Ethics is hospitality” -- who sits at our table tells us who we are; ”Authenticity is overrated”-- ‘I go with my gut’ is sheer nonsense--even if the context is nutrition.  ZOOM Class.
