Description

In the rich western countries, more and more adolescents refuse to eat properly and even sometimes starve themselves to death. The medical world officially refers to them as anorexic and, more often than not, offers these young people, who tend to be girls, special diets to put on weight and psychological support, but with limited success. We must ask the question: is anorexia really just an eating disorder? Could it actually be a mental illness, a psychological disorder? For Jacqueline Kelen, anorexia is a striking metaphor of the soul’s hunger manifested in a desire for intense spirituality and a quest for transcendence. It is also the refusal of a world devoid of grandeur and ideals, calling into question an avaricious society, driven solely by material gain. Drawing on ancient philosophy, on the religions and myths of western tradition, this book is designed for young anorexia sufferers and their families and aims to offer them clarity and peace of mind.
