Abstract

This paper review the common definitions of body and corporality. These are distinguished and settled in the current feminine corporal image. From this analysis it proposes some explanations in relation to the body worship, the "vigorexia" and the alimentary disorders. This paper concludes proposing a change from the current "somatolysis" to an integrative process of the body and corporality.
