Abstract [en]

This paper explores the human responses to lightning hazards from a cultural anthropological perspective. By definition, a natural hazard involves human action, initiative, and choices. There is always an interaction between man and nature, because humans respond and adapt themselves to the natural phenomena. These adjustments and responses differ from one society to another. The author was, at the time of writing, affiliated to both the Institute of High Voltage Research, and, the Department of Cultural Anthropology, Uppsala University.
