Steffens (80), represent the average number of houses struck by lightning in a year per million houses; in the first decade only seven years (1851-1860) are really included.
Von Bezold (81) in an earlier memoir presented data analogous to Steffens', seemingly accepting them as representing a true increase in thunderstorm destructiveness.
Heinrich Steffens, in his Anthropologie, seeks to trace out the origin and history of man in connexion with a general theory of the development of the earth, and this again as related to the formation of the solar system.

HENRIK STEFFENS (1773-1845), German philosopher, scientist and poet, of Norwegian extraction, was born on the 2nd of May 177 3 at Stavanger, and died in Berlin on the 13th of February 1845.
Steffens was one of the so-called Philosophers of Nature, a friend and adherent of Schelling and Schleiermacher.
Schleiermacher was so much struck by their excellence that he endeavoured, unsuccessfully, to obtain for Steffens a chair in the new Berlin University in 1804, in order that his own ethical teachings should be supported in the scientific department.

In 1802 he happened to meet the young Norwegian Henrik Steffens (1773-1845), who had just returned from a scientific tour in Germany, full of the doctrines of Schelling.
Under the immediate direction of Steffens, Ohlenschldger began an entirely new poetic style, and destroyed all his earlier verses.
A new epoch in the language began, and the rapidity and matchless facility of the new poetry was the wonder of Steffens himself.
One portion, acquired by the municipality, has been turned into promenades and gardens, the Steffens Park, outside the Olivaer Tor, fifty acres in extent, occupying the north-western corner.
