This project seeks to identify the progress made by studies that investigate prolonging human life, and considers whether such achievements are really possible. It also looks at how fear of death and a desire for immortality are deeply rooted in human culture, as demonstrated by a study of three works of art. Finally, it makes a personal bioethical proposal, analyzing a range of different responses to scientific and technological progress.
