Abstract

The article suggests interpreting current alimentary anxieties and the widespread hostility toward biotechnologies by defining contemporary society as an orthorexic society. The main idea proposed is that it is formed around two key pivots: the crisis of the limitations of the cultural Order that protects and prescribes the definitions of the right diet (Fischler) and the individualistic closure of the body of the subjects (Falk).
