Specimens of our Species

Princeton University Press recently released an interesting-looking book called An Intellectual History of Cannibalism by Catalin Avramescu Translated by Alistair Ian Blyth.

An Intellectual History of Cannibalism is the first book to systematically examine the role of the cannibal in the arguments of philosophers, from the classical period to modern disputes about such wide-ranging issues as vegetarianism and the right to private property.”

Here’s a review by Jenny Diski at London Review of Books.
