RICO BOVIO, Arturo. The Reasons of the Body: an Ethics to Assume Violence. Estud. filos. práct. hist. ideas [online]. 2011, vol.13, n.2, pp.61-69. ISSN 1851-9490.

The Greek and Eastern thinkers, ancient, medieval and modern philosophers, have dealt with the body only in a fragmentary way that sees it as a mere instrument. To avoid this kind of interpretation we resort to a holistic synthesis-the "total body" version that we really are. The dominant economics is the one of the "possessed body" that can be priced, sold and disposed of as working force. An overpowering violence is applied to it; it is a radical violence as it attempts on bodies' integrity and dignity. The healing of the wounded bodies of our people requires formulating and planting the seeds of the body's ethics that will accompany the reconstruction of an idea of body to be shared by all of us. If we harmonize our own and others' body's needs and abilities, and our actions are in accordance with our natural surroundings, we will be able to make out the right path.

Palabras clave : Total body; Radical violence; Body's ethics.
