Title: Machine-body: Dialogues Between Scientific Discourse And Gymnastics [corpo-máquina: Diálogos Entre Discursos Científicos E A Ginástica] [cuerpo-máquina: Diálogos Entre Discursos Científicos Y La Gimnasia]
Abstract: This article aimed to describe scientific discourse and modern practices about the body in the nineteenth century and the turn of the twentieth century, identifying the consolidation of the machine-body representation as influential in other practices such as literature, photography, and especially gymnastics in the context of European cultural production. Its sources were discourses of Claude Bernard and Georges Demeny. After analyzing those discourses, it concluded that the machine-body metaphor influenced gymnastics, which, in order to justify itself as a practice, in the Demeny´s words, evolved to its positive phase. © 2015, Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul.
