The Philosophy of Wine
Life without intoxicants of all kinds would be too real, too unambiguous, and pretty down-to-earth indeed. But wine and language rule supreme. Poets and philosophers have sung the praises of wine since the dawn of history. You might associate it with “love” and “ecstasy”, “religion” and the “sacred”, “culture” and “terroir”, and what you think is all true. But have you ever thought of what the British philosopher Roger Scruton recognised as the power of wine to turn us into more spiritual, indeed more authentic moral beings? (His book “I Drink Therefore I Am” has for years been all the rage among thoughtful wine lovers.) And the deeper he became initiated into the mysteries of wine, the more he discovered of the true meaning of love and friendship.
Dear InterNations connoisseurs of all nations, the Prague Books Group is pleased to invite you to Vinograf, one of the best wine bars in Prague, for a glass of wine (or more) and a convivial chat about intoxication, about truth – about wine.
“The magic of words – what a foretaste, what a guide, what a fulfilment of things to come: the heights of experience.”
