La raison gourmande by Michel Onfray

By Michel Onfray

Parmi les cinq sens, l'olfaction et le goût sont les plus décriés, vehicle ils rappellent avec trop d'insistance que l'homme n'est pas seulement un être qui pense, mais qu'il est aussi un animal qui renifle, despatched et goûte. D'où le discrédit jeté sur ces deux sens et ce qu'ils permettent : l. a. gastronomie, l'art de manger et de boire. Or, on peut entendre l. a. gastronomie comme une self-discipline qui voit le jour après l. a. Révolution française, avec l'effondrement de l'Ancien Régime ; une philosophie du goût n'est pas pensable dans les catégories classiques de los angeles pensée occidentale. Seule une standpoint hédoniste permet d'aborder ce sujet d'une manière spécifiquement philosophique. La Raison gourmande se suggest de répondre positivement à l. a. query de Nietzsche : y a-t-il une philosophie du goût ? L'ouvrage est composé sur le mode contrapuntique : un chapitre solide, un chapitre liquide. Dom Perignon, Grimod de l. a. Reynière, Brillat-Savarin, Carême deviennent ainsi - avec Leibniz, Descartes et Condillac - les héros de ce livre savant et drôle. Chaque fois, l'auteur s'interroge : quelle est l. a. métaphysique promise par un ragoût ou une cuisson ? Et, inversement : de quelle strategy gastronomique s'autorisent les grands systèmes philosophiques ?
