Abstract

The problem of death was widely discussed in Russian Marxism between 1907 and 1910. After the failure of Revolution in 1905, a number of oustanding thinkers and political leaders tried to enhance their "scientific" socialism with a richness of feelings and passions. Death became an important theme of reflections not only to those who embraced "God-building", like Maxim Gorky and Anatoly Lunacharsky, but more generally to all those Marxists who were disappointed with Plekhanovite orthodoxy. The present essay sketches out different sources which played a role in the debates about the problem of death and collective immortality.
