The purpose of this study is to discuss the approaches of different disciplines through comparisons of their methodologies and assessments. Taking all these approaches into account, the purpose of this study is to scrutinize how different disciplines approach the modern body through the examination of anorexic experience. The study focuses on anorexia because, as an intersection point of multiple disciplines, it is a good case of how different fields have particular methodologies and analysis on same issues.
