Publisher's Summary

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. For example:

"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 that 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 this book we examine 31 categories of rationalizations for eating animals and put 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?

Along with presenting a review of some of the important philosophical literature on the subject, Meat Logic examines the logic of eating animals to answer the age-old question once and for all.

You may never think of food the same way again.

    "The best vegan FAQ book "

    This book is my favourite of the few that cover frequently asked questions of vegans. 'Mind If I Order The Cheeseburger...' by Sherry F. Colb is also great and I recommend that too but is longer and more in depth on ten or so points. Meat Logic covers more areas and has a way of cutting directly to the question in a logical way. The logic of the answers is deniable only to the most obtuse. I wasn't expecting as much of a philosophical background to animal rights as is provided in the intro so I found that really beneficial. It sets out the case for being vegan and then the possible objections are answered one by one. It can be hard to change people's minds but this book will help examine the questions and could leave you realising your arguments against veganism aren't really sound.
