Douglas W. Huestis- a translation of Alexander Bogdanov’s THE STRUGGLE FOR VIABILITY COLLECTIVISM THROUGH BLOOD EXCHANGE

      THE STRUGGLE FOR VIABILITY COLLECTIVISM THROUGH BLOOD EXCHANGE by Alexander Bogdanov Translated and edited by Douglas W. Huestis

      Alexander Bogdanov (1873-1928) was a man who turned his hand to almost everything.  Trained as a physician, he was also an economist, politician, revolutionary (rival of Lenin), philosopher, science fiction author, poet, and scientist.  His work on organizational science forshadowed present developments in that field and in cybernetics.  In Moscow, in 1926, he founded the world’s first institute devoted entirely to blood transfusion.  Two years later, ironically, he died as a result of a tranfusion experiement gone wrong.
