 Biographical Sketch

Dr. Ralph G. H. Siu was an author, research scientist, military and civil servant, philosopher, and founding member of the International Society for Panetics (ISP).

Dr. Siu was born in Honolulu, Hawaii, in 1917 to Siu Yan and Siu Kau Shee. In 1923, he attended Kaiulani Elementary and in 1924, he began attending the St. Louis College preparatory school, which he attended until 1935. In 1929, Siu began also attending Chung-Shan High School. After graduating high school in 1935, Siu was admitted to the University of Hawaii, where he received his bachelor’s degree in chemistry in 1939, and his master’s degree in plant physiology in 1941.  His thesis was on a new method of vegetative propagation of the pineapple. While at the University of Hawaii, Siu received the silver and gold medal in dramatics, was elected to the Honor Society of Phi Kappa Phi, received honors in chemistry, was named an Ivy Orator, and received Real Dean recognition. In 1941, Siu began attending the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena.  Siu received his Ph.D. in bio-organic chemistry in 1943.  He wrote his doctoral dissertation on chemical studies related to the development of plant embryos.

From 1943 to 1945, while still living in Pasadena, Siu began work as a chemist “P-2” on the Emergency Rubber Project for the U.S. Department of Agriculture. In February 1945, he became Expert Consultant in the Office of the Quartermaster General stationed at the Philadelphia Quartermaster Depot. Siu progressed through various job titles while at the Philadelphia Quartermaster Depot including: chemist P-4, chief biological chemist P-5, chief of biological laboratories, and research director.

In 1949, two changes occurred in Siu’s life. He became research associate at Harvard University in Cambridge Massachusetts, and he met Irene I-lien Hsu. On February 12, 1950, the two were married in Yonkers, New York.
In 1951, Siu became associate technical director at the Office of the Quartermaster General in Washington, D.C. It was also during this year that his first book, Microbial Decomposition of Cellulose, was published.  In 1954, Siu became technical director and chief scientist under the supervision of Colonel William Mantz and Major General Andrew McNamara.  In 1955, Siu discovered and patented a method of making fine inherently curly glass filaments and in 1956, patented another method of forming filamentous panels. Both patents were to be manufactured by and for the government without royalty payments to the inventor. It was also during this time that Siu took part in the U.S. Army’s radiation preservation of foods program, editing the book, Radiation Preservation of Foods, published by the U.S. Government Printing Office in 1957. Siu would later receive a certificate of appreciation from the U.S. Departmental Committee on Radiation Preservation of Food for his work in this area

In 1958, Siu received special recognition from the Department of the Army for exceptional civilian service. That year, MIT Press published Siu’s Tao of Science from which he gained some “enthusiastic readers.”1   From 1962 to 1967, Siu was made (concurrently) Equal Employment Opportunity Officer and Scientific Director of the research division with the U.S. Army Materiel Command. During this time, Siu also held positions as Chairman of the Army Research Council and as Deputy Director of Research and Development Directorate.

In 1968, MIT Press published Siu’s The Man of Many Qualities: A Legacy of the I-Ching, which, in 1971, was published under the title The Portable Dragon. This book offers examples of the 64 changes in I-Ching with illustrations from Western literature. In 1968, Siu also became Associate Administrator of the Law Enforcement Assistance Administration with the Department of Justice under the supervision of Attorney General Ramsey Clark. He was then made director of the National Institute of Law Enforcement and Criminal Justice and became an honorary member of the United States Military Police Corps. In March 1969, Ralph Siu retired from government service to become a private consultant but continued to write and lecture and to receive recognition for his civilian service.

After retirement, Dr. Siu wrote articles and books on the synthesis of East-West psycho-philosophical thought. The 1970s and 1980s saw the publication of many articles such as “Chinese Baseball and Public Administration,” “Work and Serenity,” and “America and the Future of Man,” as well as four books:  Ch’i: A Neo-Taoist Approach to Life, The Craft of Power, Transcending the Power Game, and The Master Manager.

In 1986, an article appeared in the Journal of Humanistic Psychology written by Siu titled, “Panetics: The Study of the Infliction of Suffering.” It was at this point that Siu introduced the world to Panetics, the study of the infliction of suffering that uses the “dukkha” as a way to measure suffering. Siu believed that “if suffering were quantified it would not be ignored as a factor in decision making.”

In 1991, Siu, among others, founded the International Society for Panetics (ISP). In 1994, the ISP published three titles by him known as the “Panetics Trilogy”:  Less Suffering for Everybody, Panetics and Dukkha, and Seeds of Reflection. Throughout the 1990s, Siu was invited by various academic institutions and organizations to lecture on Panetics and wrote many articles on the discipline, most of which were published by the ISP in its journal Panetics.
Dr. Siu continued to write and lecture until his death on December 29, 1998, at George Washington University Hospital.  His books continued to be published after his passing. In 1999, three of his works were published by ISP called the “Harmony Trilogy”: Unifying Theory of the Human Organism and Behavior, Cheerfulness, and Shaping One’s Own Life.
