TECHNOLOGY ETHICS OF N. FEDOROV AS A successor OF NIETZSCHE’S IDEA OF SELF-OVERCOMING: THE UPBRINGING OF THE SUPERMAN AND THE SCIENCE

Cover Page

Abstract


The article is devoted to the consideration of the general principles of understanding of human development by N. F. Fedorov and F. Nietzsche. The article considers Fedorov’s philosophy of the common task to be a partial continuation of the general contours of Nietzsche's thought about the will to power. Nietzsche’s position is viewed through the prism of the concept of the will to power as a vital force overcoming the nihilistic devaluation of values (the ethics of vitalism). The concept of Fedorov is considered, first of all, from the point of view of his understanding of human self-improvement as the elevation of the power of human will over the blind natural elements. In this context, the question of the legitimacy of understanding Fedorov as an advocate of scientific and technological progress is considered. In the article, along with the parallels between Nietzsche and Fedorov, another idea of kinship of their philosophical optics through the understanding of philosophy as ethics is also carried out.
