SOSSA ROJAS, Alexis. Analysis uprising from Michel Foucault about the body, physical beauty and consumption. Polis [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.28, pp.559-581. ISSN 0718-6568.

This article aims to explain uprising from the Foucault's postulates, how, in descriptive terms, the phenomena of consumption that promote thinness and youth work as positive characteristics, that would lead us to a state of health, beauty and happiness. In this respect, this article plans to be an application of the philosophy of the French author and one reading, of several others that can arise from the author's work. Though Foucault did not study directly this type of subject matters, under a contextualization of his approaches, we take it as the framework and main axis that will lead us to problematize, link and understand the logics that operate in the speeches of physical beauty and of consumption.

Palabras clave : Michel Foucault; beauty; body; sociology of the body.
