This poster discusses one important metaphysical question concerning food and food technologies – that is, how technologies have gradually alienated food from its natural rooting and what are the consequent philosophical concerns behind that. In order to examine this question, this poster will discuss four key sources that each exemplifies a well-known, currently ongoing technology on different levels that has altered the natural properties of food and the controversy concerning such technology.


Produced for PHIL 254: Philosophy of Technology, and presented at the Undergraduate Research on the Cycle (UROC) during Gettysburg College's Year of Food (2016-2017).
