Every moral system, even those that reject the notion of morality, has its metaphysical assumptions. Clandestine moral codes lie beneath the most avante garde philosophies. What we should do with and as our bodies depends on what we make of our bodies, what we understand them to be in relation to the total human project. What is good for the flesh depends on what is true of the flesh, a matter enlightened by intelligent thought, human experience, and, above all, the truth of God made flesh.
