The aim of this article is to give a better understanding of the way in which French sociologists have studied the cultural relevance of body among young people. The paper starts by taking into account some epistemological limits and difficulties due to the nature of this object. Then it offers a historical account of the encounter between body and youth in sociological researches. Finally, it underlines three major paradoxes concerning the relevance of the body in French society (i.e., the tension between individual freedom and social conformity, the quest for performance and intimacy, the idea that body is becoming socially tougher and more malleable at the same time) and discusses the most important topics concerning the representations of body among young people as they are dealt with by current French works.
