Which philosophers have written cogently on the quantifying of suffering? I don't mean the value of suffering
, like Nietzsche and the will to power or Kierkegaard and the path to understanding or extreme utilitarianist like Pearce, arguing for the eradication of suffering. I mean texts which consider the problems of how to value and quantifies degrees of suffering.
