The hypothesis to be verified explains why bodily asceticism is excluded, owing to the influence of the ideologist, from the system of public health in the structure of a liberal cratocracy, in which reason is the good of the authority for its own sake. In the structure of national society, the system of bodily asceticism is raised to the status of community good. Despite the blocking of the connectivity of the system of bodily asceticism to the social structure, academic gymnasions survived the collapse of the state. Each of them independently excused itself with the idealess reason of the market in physical services, the undoubtedly important reason for the private network of fitness clubs but failed to meet the expectations of the fraction of the community of scholars who constantly aspire to fulfil public tasks relevant to the cultural community of the nation. Modernising the system of bodily asceticism located by the authorities, within the structure of public health, can be achieved with the participation of both philosophers and teachers of physical culture.
