Jonathan Crane: Can We Eat Enough?


Location: McKenna Hall Auditorium

Jonathan 2013

Are we eating ourselves to death? Our food landscape orients us to things external to our bodies – to industries, celebrities, scientific claims, laws, foodstuffs, and brand allegiance. Dr. Jonathan Crane proposes an approach that reclaims persons as eaters – a powerful start to learning how to eat (just) enough.

Jonathan Crane is the Raymond F. Schinazi Scholar in Bioethics and Jewish Thought in the Center for Ethics at Emory University. He earned a B.A. (summa cum laude) from Wheaton College in Massachusetts, a M.A. in international peace studies from the University of Notre Dame, a M.Phil. in Gandhian thought from Gujarat Vidyapith in India, a M.A. in Hebrew Literature and rabbinic ordination from Hebrew Union College-Jewish Institute of Religion in New York, and a Ph.D. in religion from the University of Toronto.  He is the co-author of Ahimsa: The Way to Peace, co-editor of The Oxford Handbook of Jewish Ethics and Morality, author of Narratives and Jewish Bioethics, and editor of Beastly Morality: Animals as Ethical Agents
