Abstract
This paper examines the way in which Philip Roth in Everyman represents the posthuman conditions and circumstances where an old man cannot but lead a life contingent on artificial/nonhuman medical devices to complicate and challenge the existing posthuman notions of humanity and human dignity, as well as the foundational concepts of modern humanism. By focusing on how Roth narrates the protagonist’s suffering of medical operations and subsequent retroactive recognitions, I shed new light on the implicit correlation between ageing and posthumanism in Everyman in terms of their collective role in the author’s posthuman reformulation of the significance of life,ethics of past, and self-evaluation and self-admonition. By depicting this correlation, I claim, he leads readers to consider new posthuman conditions of being, ageing, and death already set for those who

live in the biotechnological age.
