Metaphysics of the body

Bernard Andrieu, Marie Bacqué-Juston, Béatrice Galinon-Melenec, Axel Guioux, Jean-Philippe Pierron

How does one gain an understanding of the human body? Our approach does not lie in what science (physical, biology, medicine) today claims to know about the body, nor in the cultural representations around it: is it possible to gain an understanding from the sensitive experience of the body?

In a context of questioning by science of the legitimacy of osteopathy, Chinese traditional medicine and various practices on the body, this study day features the different approaches to understanding the human body. The objective is to reconcile and confront these practices to better comprehend the hypotheses on which they are based.
