    Popular Culture and Philosophy: Book 14 - 1st printing. "Chewing the Fat with Kant and Nietzsche!" Edited by Lisa Heldke, Kerri Mommer, and Cynthia Pineo. Dr. Robert Atkins, a New York cardiologist, unleashed his low-carb revolution upon an unsuspecting and increasingly pudgy world in 1972. Atkins quickly recruited millions of converts and eventually spawned a legion of imitators, including the Zone, Protein Power, and South Beach diets. Conventional dietary opinion, funded by the farming lobby, was scandalized. Then the dietary world was shaken to its foundations when the New York Times proclaimed that the latest medical research demonstrated the efficacy of Atkins. While the Great Diet War rages on with undiminished ferocity, the broader philosophical questions raised by Atkins have yet to be explored. What does the low-carb revolution mean for our lives, our most fundamental values, and our place in the cosmos? Now, for the first time, these big fat conceptual issues are attacked with gusto by sixteen keen, well-rounded philosophical intellects. The Atkins Diet and Philosophy offers a balanced fare of sympathy and criticism for Atkins, garnished by piquant wit and topped off with fragrant aper├žus! Softcover, 274 pages, Text only. Cover price $17.95.
