David Pearce is author of The Hedonistic Imperative (1995), which calls for the use of biotechnology and IT to abolish the biology of suffering throughout the living world. In 1998, he co-founded with Nick Bostrom the World Transhumanist Association (H+). Transhumanists believe in using technology to overcome our biological limitations – and ultimately the creation of a “Triple┬áS” civilisation of superlongevity, superhappiness and superintelligence.
