Transhumanism is a young ideology, and its creators have hazy and confused notion of their forerunners and philosophical roots. The authors attempt to show that some of the ideas and concepts of Karl Marx meet the aspirations of transhumanists to radically transform the human body. This is, first of all, the idea of the revolutionary role of labor and technology in the history of mankind, along with the concepts of the “inorganic body” of man and the essence of man as an “ensemble of social relations”.
