Abstract

The explanations for the historically changing dynamics of weather conditions vary considerably, depending on when and where they were formulated. These differing views shall be examined and explained in terms of how they affected individuals and groups, how they reflect fundamental problems of philosophical understanding in their respective times, and how they contributed to an understanding of daily or long term weather phenomena. The history of explanations shows a play between the endeavour of catching the truth and getting a reliable weather forecast on the one hand and the probability typical for all weather phenomena on the other.
