This paper is presented in the spirit of the stated intentions for the Workshop on Comparative Risk Assessment; Woods Hole, Massachusetts; March 31-April 4, 1975. A brief discussion of several topics is provided in the hope of stimulating further consideration in the area of "risk assessment". Included are observations, experiences, clinical impressions, and speculative thoughts reflective of, the writer's growing interest in this relatively new field of scientific inquiry. A particular methodology for. quantifying the perceived "risk" of various environmental hazards and/or technological advances is proposed. A more detailed and comprehensive approach to many of these issues is the aim of the author after his appointment as Research Scholar with the collaborative International Institute of Applied Systems Analysis--International Atomic Energy Agency--Project (Vienna, Austria) in June, 1975.
