Michel de Montaigne began his essay on cannibalism with an appeal to readers to avoid knee-jerk reactions and, instead, to approach the subject with reason. I can’t help but agree, even if the reason should avoid reasonableness and, instead, approach the subject with that of madness, cutting satire and a penchant for Greek roots. In this way, we can find an appropriately nuanced take on, to switch to Greek, anthropophagy.
