Critical Reflection back upon a Sunday Lunch and the Consumption of Guacamole.  Nashville USA, June 2013.

“Biological or social as the origins of these desires might be, it is true in either case that we did not choose them. Since we did not choose our desires, we are not free when we act from desire…. We can talk readily enough of a person’s actions being rational or irrational, but we normally do so to the ultimate ends or goals that person has, and these ends will be based on desires.”

– Peter Singer, HEGEL: A VERY SHORT INTRODUCTION (1983)
