“Compassion alone is not enough – we need to systematise benevolence”: David Pearce Video #Sentientist Conversation


Sentientist Conversations: David Pearce
“Compassion alone is not enough – We need to systematise benevolence.”

In this video, Jamie talks to philosopher and co-founder of the World Transhumanist Organisation (now Humanity+), David Pearce.

We talk about the evolution of David’s naturalistic, sentiocentric philosophy and his “Hedonistic Imperative” – the moral obligation to work towards the abolition of suffering in all sentient life.

Every like, comment, share and subscription helps to normalise rational compassionate thinking. Thank you for spreading the word.
