Charles Horn is an award-winning and Emmy-nominated writer.
Horn has authored Meat Logic: Why Do We Eat Animals, a book examining justifications for eating meat and other animal products.
The book argues for veganism. Why do we eat animals?
Most of us think this question is absurd, but if pressed to answer we tend to provide one of a number of rationalizations.
"Humans are omnivores."
“Every living thing eats other living things.”
"Animals don't possess human cognition."
“Humans need to eat animals to live.”
We’ve all heard these arguments before, and many others too. Maybe we’ve even used these arguments ourselves. But are they logically sound?
Or is eating animals in fact a prejudice, involving a thought process similar to the thought process behind racism and sexism? How exactly could the subject of eating animals teach us anything about prejudice and human rights? And supposing humans actually did need to eat animals to stay healthy, what can logic tell us about how we should act in such a situation?
In Meat Logic: Why Do We Eat Animals, it examines 31 categories of rationalizations for eating animals and puts them all to the test. Do our thoughts and actions stand up to rational scrutiny or not? And if our thought process is ever failing us, can this be illuminated?
Reading this book, You may never think of food the same way again.
