About the event:
The vegetarian diet, today so widespread & "fashionable", has had a very long & fascinating history. Until the nineteenth century, it was called ‘the Pythagorean diet’: this is because its origin, at least in Western culture, dates to the philosopher Pythagoras, who lived in the sixth century BC. In this speech, we will discuss the characteristics of Pythagorean vegetarianism & Pythagoras’ motivations behind prohibiting the killing of animals & the consumption of meat. The conference will therefore have a historical & medical character as well as a philosophical one.
