De los angeles transgénèse au " sperme numérique ", de l'éloge subtil du clonage à une défense paradoxale de l'euthanasie ou à une attaque en règle des soins palliatifs, d'une réactivation des thèses antiques sur le suicide à une célébration de l. a. chirurgie de los angeles greffe, ce livre définit ainsi un " corps faustien " : déchristianisé, donc post-chrétien, ouvragé par l'artifice, libre et structuré par une énergie vitaliste.

Il y développe sa critique radicale des visions idéalistes de l. a. chair. Et son parti pris, iconoclaste mais argumenté, en faveur d'une éthique passionnément hédoniste lance un débat promis au tumulte
