What’s Wrong with Eating People
When is a gin and tonic not a gin and tonic? Why save endangered species? Should men and women be treated equally? When does yes mean no? Are we more than our brains? Peter Cave's second book of logical paradoxes, loopholes, and conundrums carves up some of life's most important questions with clarity, sparkle, and humor. From encounters with bears (ethical dilemmas) to talking turkeys (the problem of induction), Cave leaves no stone unturned, covering a smorgasbord of topics like logic, ethics, art, and politics, illustrated with quirky cartoons throughout. A philosopher, writer, and broadcaster, Cave teaches with London's Open University and City University and chairs the Humanist Philosopher's Group.
