From Steven Shapin's Vegetable Love, in last week's New Yorker: "The history of vegetarian (and anti-vegetarian) thought neither adds up nor goes anywhere, except in the sense that it goes everywhere that people disposed to reflection have explored when asking what it means to be human and to be good. It’s a history of human morality, but it’s no less a history of human ingenuity in moral argumentation." Great long piece exploring Tristram Stuart's new book The Bloodless Revolution: A Cultural History of Vegetarianism from 1600 to Modern Times, which looks like a solid, thoughtful read for vegetarians and dedicated carnivores alike.
