"The ‘modernity’ through the image of food and digestion.” This is the task and the agenda of the physiological and psychological genealogy clearly identified by Nietzsche in a fragment of the autumn of 1888 and uncompromising pursued in all his work. Diagnosis is implacable and made possible by a widespread use of gastrological metaphor, applied to all fields of experience and language by a reckless writing of history. The experience of contemporary men is in fact poor and sick, characterized by a radical duplicity and a contradiction without synthesis, because man is double, and his embodied, deeply physiological economy too, an extreme being anti- or even pre-modern.
