The 1755 earthquake and tsunami were influential not only in Portugal but in all European and North African countries where the devastating effects were felt. The entire world was deeply impressed and the discussion of its causes generated a large amount of scientific and metaphysical speculation. It inspired philosophers, poets and writers. The socio-economic consequences of the event were great and affected the future organization and development of Portugal. The possibility of a similar occurence urges society and the scientific community to reflect on its lessons.

MEDIA REVIEWS
From the reviews: "The 1755 Lisbon Earthquake: Revisited is a collection of high-quality, selected and improved proceedings from an international conference that took place in Lisbon (2005) to commemorate the 250th anniversary of the great 1755 earthquake. ... this book puts together very interesting papers from different authors examining the 1755 Lisbon earthquake from different angles. ... This book constitutes a good piece of work for any specialist (seismologist, civil engineer, risk manager, historian, philosopher, etc.) who wishes to broaden his or her knowledge."
