    ABOUT CLAUDE LEVI-STRAUSS Claude Lévi-Strauss was a French social anthropologist who became a leading scholar in the structural approach to social anthropology. He is famous for theorizing that if social scientists can understand man’s mental structures they can then build a study of man which is as scientific as the laws of gravity.

  2. On Point: Claude Levi-Strauss

    At the imperial dawn of the 20th century, there was the “civilized” world and the “savage” or “primitive” world, and one felt free to judge the other.

    By the century’s end, the whole idea of primitive man as separate from civilized man was pretty well gone. And with it, the “savage mind.”

    Much of the banishing was the work of the towering anthropologist Claude Levi-Strauss. Levi-Strauss has died at 100 in his native France. We are all, he said, driven by deep myth and common structures of thinking — even to our own extinction.
