A young David Pearce

David Pearce is a British visionary who promotes the abolition of the chemical substrates of suffering in all sentient life.

Pearce's views are most prominently presented in The Hedonistic Imperative, a manifesto in which he outlines how genetic engineering and nanotechnology will ultimately eliminate all forms of aversive experience.

Pearce was co-founder (with Nick Bostrom) of the World Transhumanist Association. He is currently the director of BLTC Research.
