One of the world's leading anthropologists assesses the work of the founder of structural anthropology
Anthropologist Claude L vi-Strauss was among the most influential thinkers of the 20th century. In this rigorous study, Maurice Godelier traces the evolution of his thought. Focusing primarily on L vi-Strauss' analysis of kinship and myth, Godelier provides an assessment of his intellectual achievements and legacy. Meticulously researched, Claude L vi-Strauss is written in a clear and accessible style. The culmination of decades of engagement with L vi-Strauss' work, this book will prove indispensible to students of L vi-Strauss' thought and structural anthropology more generally.
