Google vs Death - Aging Research, a Transhumanist Response - Part 2




October 29, 2013

Adam Ford talks with IEET Fellow and philosopher David Pearce about Google vs Death, published on Oct 26, 2013. This Part 2 of 2.

David Pearce is a British utilitarian philosopher and transhumanist, who promotes the idea that there exists a strong ethical imperative for humans to work towards the abolition of suffering in all sentient life. His internet manifesto The Hedonistic Imperative details how he believes the abolition of suffering can be accomplished through “paradise engineering.” He co-founded the World Transhumanist Association in 1998, and the Abolitionist Society in 2002.
