You’re still carnivorous?

When eating animals raises everyday questions


J. Porcher, O. Néron de Surgy , P. Légasse

Edition 2017

Entre interdire des pratiques telles que la vivisection, la corrida, la chasse ou l’abattage et nous priver de bons rôtis, pour beaucoup il y a un fossé ! Pour d’autres, il faut bannir toute utilisation d’animaux, même pour se nourrir…

Grâce au concours d’une douzaine d’experts, ce livre expose les problèmes et les bienfaits dont la domestication est la source, permet d’y voir clair dans la cacophonie des discours sur « l’élevage » et esquisse des scénarios de changement dans notre alimentation et dans nos relations avec les animaux pour les prochaines décennies.
