The Taste for Ethics: An Ethic of Food Consumption - The International Library of Environmental, Agricultural and Food Ethics 7 (Paperback)Christian Coff (author)
- We can order this
This book marks a new departure in ethics, which has up to now been a question of `the good life' in relation to other people, based on Greek concepts of friendship and the Judaeo-Christian 'caritas.' No early moral teaching discussed man's relation to the origin of foodstuffs and the system that produced them; doubtless the question was of little interest since the production path was so short.

From the reviews:"This book makes the case for an ethical understanding of food consumption. Christian Coff notes that a growing number of consumers are making ethics a central part of their food consumption choices. ... Coff's arguments and analyses are very intriguing and convincing. I would recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in understanding the difficult and complex nature of creating an ethical and values-based food system." (Michael A. Long, Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics, Vol. 22, 2009)
