The Agony & the Ecstasy

We take it for granted that eradicating pain is desirable. And since De Quincey remarked that a quarter of human misery was toothache, remarkable strides have indeed been made. But is it possible, and do we want, to eliminate pain and suffering entirely or is it necessary to life?

Speakers: Peter Dews, Rebecca Roache, Simon Baron-Cohen
