The Mass Psychology of Fittism – Edward Yu

The Mass Psychology of Fittism

Modern exercise and nutrition are heavily rooted in the 1st Law of Thermodynamics–a theory which came about from scientific analyses of machines. Yet, if humans are fundamentally different from machines, would we benefit from another way by which to view how we move our bodies (and therefore how we exercise)? The Mass Psychology of Fittism explores how treating humans like machines can lead to increasingly restricted movement, thereby making us more unalive and machine-like.
