Item description for Foodscapes: Towards a Deleuzian Ethics of Consumption by Rick Dolphijn...
After traveling through the cities of Hangzhou, China, Boston, U.S.A., Bangalore, India, and Lyon, France; after 107 conversations within these cities; and after studying the thoughts of Gilles Deleuze, Rick Dolphijn explores the realms of food. Traveling throughout the world AND the world of philosophy, he opens up four different spaces (the four different parts of this book) in which various experiments take place in thinking how we relate to the edible; connecting the edible to such concepts as the self, the event, the State, health, dietetics, territoriality, capitalism, and nomadology, to name just a few. He shows us how the micropolitics of food is capable of showing us everything. Thus, it performs an ethics of life.
