A fascinating breakdown of the complexities of food pathologies and an exploration of their depths and underlying archetypes.

In the last century food has become a multibillion-dollar industry, resulting in the world's population becoming fatter and fatter. This has resulted in rapidly growing cases of obesity, and its accompanying health conditions such as diabetes, hypertension and heart problems. Food, Glorious Food will explore the origins of the importance of food in our society, and through a Jungian lens, what it is about food that drives us, as a society, beyond the point of satiety. The book also explores the culture symbols of the unconscious narrative around food, using Lewis Carroll's Alice in Wonderland as a text to further illustrate this.
