Cosmism is a philosophical perspective that proposes the ethical use of science and technology to solve the past, present and future problems of humanity, its expansion and union with the universe. It is strongly influenced by orthodox Christianity and the values ​​of the Russian tradition: unity of the cosmos, the link between man and nature, and the conception that everything is constantly evolving. The philosophy has influenced the development of modern transhumanism. Its founder was Nikolai Fedorovich Fedorov (1827-1903) who developed the idea of ​​a project to achieve immortality including the revival of all those prior deceased.

Cosmism developed in different areas—philosophically, with figures such as Nikolai Berdiáyev, Vladimir Solovyov; artistically with poets and writers like Andrei Platonov and Velimir Jlébnikov among; scientifically with figures like Konstantin Tsiolkovski, a theoretical physicist who established the principles for the construction of space rockets, and Vladimir Vernadski, Russian physicist and mathematician who developed the concept of the noosphere.
