Claude Lévi-Strauss Has Died

Claude Lévi-Strauss died two days ago. He was 100 years old.

I shouldn’t have to write about his impact to the field of anthropology, in summary it was profound. He authored many texts. He set forth structuralism, a mode of thought by which we can compare relationships between social systems. His contributions to studying cultures and anthropology were deep and he will be missed.

  1. Everything I believe in anthropology is in strict contradiction to everything Levi Srauss said, but I guess he would say that’s just another damn binary position.

    He will be missed.

  2. I owe Levi-Strauss a lot, in the very least my interest in comparative ethnology. His work on kinship was called a “brilliant failure.” This may be true. On the other hand, his theory of myth and of the mind was a big success. The human mind does work in opposites.
    May he rest in peace.

  3. The passing of the PC-mongering liar Levi-Strauss is hopefully one more nail in the coffin of the corrupt discipline of “cultural anthropology.”
