Abstract

Food has always had a heavy influence on human biological and cultural evolution. It has moved beyond mere sustenance and turned into symbol and meaningful part of community-based traditions. It has become a vehicle for values and beliefs, which, in turn, have built up our perception of food and eating. Animal source foods have always been a constituent of human diets. Problematizing food choices and relating them to the power humans exert on domestic animals urges us to focus on the way humans treat other living beings. In this perspective, the Summer School "Cibo: la vita condivisa" provides new perspective on food and on ethical consequences of food choices.
