ABSTRACT
Through this study, we intend to ask ourselves about anorexia, and their relationship with the body and culture. What this symptom can tell us about the way that the subject establishes his relationship with the Other? The body of the anorexic show a paradox for psychoanalysis, the “Meagers/Phallicisation” in this symptom show us the radical side of the psychoanalytical statutes of the body, drive and “jouissance”. The anorexic, to assert his desire, uses a bad strategy of separation, which meagers his body arresting him in a more voracious alienation into the Other desire. His symptom is a desperate attempt to insert a lack in this devastating Other. From this, we can contemplate if there is a relationship of the current configuration of culture with the increasing cases of anorexia. The contemporaneous, in an attempt to expel the lack of the speech, fall in the same mistake of the modernism, which didn’t considered the subject in his relationship with the “jouissance”.
