Samenvatting

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

Recensie(s)

All would agree on the influence of the voluminous oeuvre of L vi-Strauss within the history of the Human Sciences. To come to terms with it, we need a reliable guide, such as this. Students of kinship, myth, or mythical thinking may disagree with some of Godelier's positions, but have here a splendid basis on which to build. --Nick Allen, University of Oxford Maurice Godelier, eminent French anthropologist, surveys and assesses, sympathetically and critically, the mass of writings on kinship and mythology of another eminent French anthropologist, Claude L vi-Strauss. This deep engagement of the one with the other is, for readers, both a pleasure and a powerful tool. --Thomas R. Trautmann, Professor Emeritus, University of Michigan Cuts through the fog of commentary surrounding the legacy of this most enigmatic of scholars, to address L vi-Strauss's legacy in its own, properly anthropological terms. The book is a joy to read. --Tim Ingold, University of Aberdeen
