ABSTRACT

"...two hundred years ago, before the development of potent analgesics and surgical anaesthetics, the notion that so-called "physical" pain could be banished from most people's lives would have seemed crankish. Most of us in the affluent western nations now take its daily absence for granted - though opiophobia prolongs its presence in the lives of a minority. The prospect that what we describe as "mental" pain, too, could ever be eradicated is equally counter-intuitive. The feasibility of its abolition via biotechnology turns its deliberate retention into an issue of social policy and ethical choice..."
