'Saniotis A, Mohammadi K, Galassi FM, 2024: Ancient Greeks and Body/Cognitive Enhancement Technologies: An Anthropological Perspective. Anthropologie (Brno) 62, 1: 55-66'.
Greek mythology formed the basis of much of Greek philosophy, art and science. The Greeks conceptualised their universe as animated by forces and elements which they anthropomorphised as gods and other supernatural beings. However, only recently has there been increasing attention on Greek mythology as a source of advanced technological and biomedical concepts. The Greek myths are fascinating for their technological ideas pertaining to body/cognitive enhancement. This paper provides theoretical correlations between Greek mythological and socio-historic dimensions of human enhancement, and some of their current/future technological developments, hence, offering a cultural anthropological perspective.
