What all of this shows is that gluttony is often the result of far deeper and vices such as those of greed and pride which even those who fight to resist gastronomic temptation do not seem to be troubled about. And so we come full circle: gluttony is not the most widespread vice even in the West but only the most widely-perceived and documented vice. There is a world of difference between these two states of affairs.
Indeed, it is because of our other vices that we have become obsessed with gluttony. Despite its shortcomings, Gluttony remains a well-written and nicely-illustrated little book that will stimulate readers into thinking about these issues seriously. And that, is surely what this series is all about. Constantine Sandis is associate lecturer in philosophy, The Open University.

We think of of gourmet as a connoisseur, while a gourmand is a discriminating glutton. A Gourmet? A Gourmand? An Epicure? Here is our response to an inquiry from a reader: FOODIE: A foodie can be defined as someone who has a passion for high quality food, and pursues it with zeal.
The word evolved from the Old French word for glutton, gormant. Here, the emphasis is on sensuous enjoyment and quantity over connoisseurship. All rights reserved.
