FREIRE, Dirce de Sá  and  ANDRADA, Bárbara Costa C.. The violence of / in the eating disorders' body. Cad. psicanal. [online]. 2012, vol.34, n.26, pp. 27-36. ISSN 1413-6295.

The increasing proliferation of eating disorders is indicative of a very typical way of contemporary subjectivity. Such manifestations can be understood as an effect of subjective violence that imprints marks of an excess against which the subject cannot find enough symbolic resources to get through them, leaving the record of these difficulties in anorexic, bulimic or obese bodies. Eating disorders will be examined as a possible "relationship of discontinuity" in the formation of subjectivity, revealing a feeble balance between excess and limit.

Keywords : Eating disorders; obesity; anorexia nervosa; bulimia nervosa; "psychoanalysis of the sensible".
