45 Part II MEAT IS MUSCLE 5 EVOLUTION AND ELEVATION Human groups the world over, according to Maurice Bloch, are concerned to resolve deep-rooted questions of identity— questions which commonly focus upon one particular problem: how far is man separate or continuous with animals, plants and even geographical and cosmological events? The answer is, like any answer to this fundamental question, always unsatisfactory, and therefore such answers endlessly throw up further problems, thereby initiating an ongoing, never resolved, discourse.
Our attitudes to different foods are conditioned by the associations which we invest in them and we learn these from the day we are born. Mary Douglas notes that: Nutritionists know that the palate is trained, that taste and smell are subject to cultural control. Yet for lack of other hypotheses, the notion persists that what makes an item of food acceptable is some quality inherent in the thing itself. Present research into palatability tends to concentrate on individual reactions to individual items.
Each meaning, and countless others, is true for the individuals concerned, extending the significance of the name of a particular meat, or of meat in general, far beyond its function as a foodstuff. It is the totality of these ideas which combine to form a language, and which constitute culture. We must look to the depth and diversity of meaning in all our ideas and actions. Thus economics and technology are symbolic in the very same sense as unicorns or religious icons, though they undoubtedly differ in both their form and content.
