Panetometry is the art and science of collecting and interpreting quantitative data concerning the infliction of suffering. This term and this definition were proposed here for the first time in April 2001.

An Outline of Panetometry is offered to present a systematic summary of the new specialty as it is progressively developed within the field of panetics, a discipline concerned with the infliction of suffering. About panetics and the International Society for Panetics (ISP), see www.panetics.info.

Documents of the ISP dealing with quantification were reviewed before April 2001. These documents could be found in four locations : the Panetics Global Forum on the Internet, the articles on the ISP's website, Ralph Siu's writings (essentially collected in his 1998 book Understanding and Minimizing the Infliction of Suffering), and the journal Panetics. The following reviews are offered :

Review of Messages about Quantification on the Panetics Global Forum

Review of Articles Related to Quantification on the ISP's Website

Review of Ralph Siu's Writings on Quantification

Please note that articles concerning quantification in the journal Panetics have not been reviewed until now. It must be understood that the contents of these articles are, for the essential, included on the ISP's website, or in the Siu's 1998 book. A thorough review of the journal could be presented at a later stage.

Your comments or collaboration are welcome. My name is Robert Daoust. I invite you to have a look at my website about suffering. See in particular Quantitative Studies in my Introduction to the Systematic Study of Suffering.
