Life extension – a conservative enterprise? Some fin-de-siècle and
early twentieth-century precursors of transhumanism
Ilia Stambler


 The beginning of the modern period in the pursuit of radical human
enhancement and longevity can be traced to fin-de-siècle/early
twentieth-century scientific and technological optimism and
therapeutic activism. The works of several authors of the period –
Fedorov, Stephens, Bogdanov, Nietzsche and Finot – reveal conflicting
ideological and social pathways toward the goals of human enhancement
and life extension.
