Suffering is the unifying theme of the latest edition of tpm editor Julian Baggini’s Philosophy Monthly. Is it all bad or do we need at least some it. Mark Vernon and Havi Carel argue that suffering can be part of the good life, while transhumanist Nick Bostrom makes the moral case for a future when death and disease will be conquered. Janet Radcliffe Richards also talks about suffering as a manifestly bad thing in her incisive critique of muddled morality.
