Body-hacking et logique supplétive : un mode contemporain de traitement du corps

Abstract : Body-hacking is undoubtedly a post-modern praxis. Emerging in the XXIst century, it claims that evolution will be achieved by the cross-breeding of human beings and machines. Although the movement federates now an increasing number of enthusiasts, or curious, speeches of some pioneers are a good source to be taught about the possibilities of supplementing the image of adisinvest, fragmented or inefficient speaking body. To solve the absence of relation between the sexes, to locate captors of jouissance in the body or to veil the real of the body, body-hacking has an advantage by covering, and potentially limiting, some practices that are close to mutilation. Moreover, it is rooted in a rich social link, using social networks. Testimonies of some hackers are then very precious to explore the progressive elaboration of symptomatic constructions that limit jouissance.
