Alexithymia has been defined as a difficulty in identifying and describing feelings, a diminished introspective capacity and a constricted imagination. Currently it has been proposed to use the Multiple Code Theory developed by Wilma Bucci in the conceptualization of alexithymia. The alexithymic condition would correspond to a dissociation between the subsymbolic system and the two symbolic systems, which would result in not having words for emotions. This definition implies, in relation to the concept of alexithymia and to the relationship between mind and body, a complete overcome of the mind/body dualism in the health/disease dynamics that involve affect regulation, and a theoretical confirmation that alexithymia arises in a deficit area rather than in defensiveness, representing a risk factor for the development of both physical and mental diseases.
Keywords: Alexithymia, multiple code theory, relationship between mind and body
