Title: Human Suffering and Quality of Life:Conceptualizing Stories and Statistics
Citation Type: Book, Whole
Publication Year: 2014
Abstract: The intent of this book is to take on four very big challenges: (1) a framework that makes it easier to think about suffering and measure it, (2) a compilation of available data on how much suffering exists in the world, (3) rationales for why people should become more aware of the vast volume of severe suffering around the world, and (4) justification for giving higher priority to the reduction of suffering in our personal, state, and global policy objectives. With these goals, you should not be surprised that the book looks at suffering from many different angles.
