What does ponerology mean?

Ponerology
Ponerology is the name given by Polish psychiatrist Andrzej Łobaczewski to an interdisciplinary study of social issues. This discipline makes use of data from psychology, sociology, philosophy, and history to account for such phenomena as aggressive war, ethnic cleansing, genocide, and despotism. The original theory and research was conducted by psychologists and psychiatrists working in Poland, Czechoslovakia, and Hungary in the years prior to the institution of Communism and in the works of Stefan Blachowski and Kazimierz Dąbrowski. Łobaczewski adopted the term from the branch of theology dealing with the study of evil, derived from the Greek word poneros. According to Łobaczewski, all societies vacillate between "happy times," or times of prosperity, during which advanced psychological knowledge of psychopathological influence in the corridors of power is suppressed, and "unhappy times." During unhappy times, the intelligentsia and society at large can recover this specialized knowledge to resolve the social order along mentally healthier lines. It is to be noted that happy times do not imply morally advanced times, as Łobaczewski makes clear that this happiness or prosperity may well be premised on the oppression of a target group.
