The Philosopher in the Pot
The one who is thinking a lot has to eat a lot, too. One thing is for sure: A slow metabolism attests mental lazyness!
“Primum vivere, deinde philosophare”: First living, then philosophy. Freely adapted from Schopenhauer, this book follows philosophers through everyday life, to the place where it is most surprising and tasteful: to the dinner table. Out of letters, diary entries and side chapters of their main opus, the favourite dishes and the often obscure dinner rituals of the great thinkers are reconstructed. We accompany them on their culinary journeys through Europe and watch how nutrition left its marks in their philosophy or even influenced it significantly.
You think like Nietzsche? Then why not eat like he did! Invite for a dinner marked by your favourite philosopher and amuse yourself at his favourite music with funny culinary anecdotes.
