An Agent Specific Or An All Disaster Spectrum Approach To Socio-Behavioral Apsects of Earthquakes?
Quarantelli, E. L.

This paper is aimed at making us better aware, perhaps, of some of the consequences of our usual blindness. If the comments and observation made make us more conscious that the way we habitually see phenomena is not the only meaningful way possible or the only obvious one, it will have achieved its major goal. While later on, we eventually advocate one kind of perspective for certain kinds of earhquake phenomena, the purpose of this paper is less one of converting people to a particular approach that it is to try to suggest that there are different ways.
