Hunger, Paperback / softback Book

Hunger Paperback / softback

Part of the The Art of Living series


Understanding hunger is the key to understanding ourselves.

While they seem the most obvious things about us, our hungers are also deeply mysterious, arising out of, and casting light on, the unique character of human consciousness.

In humans, physiological need is transformed into a multitude of needs that are remote from organic necessity.

In Hunger, Ray Tallis takes us through the different levels of our hunger.

Out of our primary appetites arise a myriad of pleasures and tastes that are elaborated in second-level hedonistic hungers creating new values.

The art of living is the art of managing our hungers.
