La raison gourmande by Michel Onfray

By Michel Onfray

Parmi les cinq sens, l'olfaction et le goût sont les plus décriés, motor 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 los angeles gastronomie comme une self-discipline qui voit le jour après los angeles 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 point of view 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 los angeles 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 approach gastronomique s'autorisent les grands systèmes philosophiques ?

And also among them is that whose angles are equal to one another but whose sides are different, like the figures that are called rectangles,L18 because their length is different from their width, the former exceeding the latter, and not one equaling the other as in the case of the square. And these figures are also called oblongs,L19 because in their length they resemble something elongated. And also among them is that whose sides are equal to one another, but whose angles are not equal to one another, like the surface 16 chapter one that is called the rhombus,L20 and it is as if it were a square pressed on its side, and for that reason two of its angles became acute and the two others obtuse.

And this is why the right angle turns out to be definite, because it is vertical, and the angle that is bigger or smaller than a right angle is not definite, and that is because when the inclination in the angles and its lowering should be different with a permanent difference, the increase of the angle and its decrease will also turn out to be correspondingly different with a permanent difference, and that is because, in magnitude, the bigger increase is the smaller decrease. And an angle that is bigger than a right angle is called obtuse, and one that is smaller than a right angle is acute.

Al-Nayrizi said: It is as if he intended the meaning that Archimedes gave, that it is the shortest distance that connects two points. Simplicius said: Since Euclid, by his statement, “that which is equal to what is between any two points”, meant the distance that is between the two endpoints, therefore, if we fix the two points that are the extremities of the line (for he only defined the finite line in this definition), and take the distance that is between the two of them as if it were a line, even if there is no line between the two of them, that distance will be equal to the straight line which the two points terminate.
