Structural anthropology by Claude Lévi-Strauss( Book )

206 editions published between 1919 and 2012 in 9 languages and held by 2,603 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lévi-Strauss is not only one of the extremely few scholars of sufficient distinction to be able to say, without presumption, what social anthropology is about; but he has also actually demonstrated ... that he is pre-eminently worth listening to. He does not simply practice social anthropology, he makes exciting and original contributions to it. This book provides an introduction to his distinctive approach to anthropology as the study of a science of general principles. The now renowned "structural method," which has changed the face of social anthropology, views man and society in terms of universals--kinship, social organization, religion and mythology, and art

The story of Lynx by Claude Lévi-Strauss( Book )

42 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 1,108 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this wide-ranging work, the master of structural anthropology considers the many variations in a story that occurs in both North and South America, but especially among the Salish-speaking peoples of the Northwest Coast. He also shows how centuries of contract with Europeans have altered the tales. Levi-Strauss focuses on the opposition between Wild Cat and Coyote to explore the meaning and uses of gemellarity, or twinness, in Native American culture. The concept of dual organization that these tales exemplify is one of non-equivalence: everything has an opposite or other, with which it coexists in unstable tension. In contrast, Levi-Strauss argues, European notions of twinness - as in the myth of Castor and Pollux - stress the essential sameness of the twins. This fundamental cultural difference lay behind the fatal clash of European and Native American peoples. The Story of Lynx addresses and clarifies all the major issues that have occupied Levi-Strauss for decades, and is the only one of his books in which he explicitly connects history and structuralism. The result is a work that will appeal to those interested in American Indian mythology. It will be required reading for anyone who wants to understand the thought of one of the most important and influential minds of the twentieth century
The naked man by Claude Lévi-Strauss( Book )

48 editions published between 1971 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 1,019 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Le nu occupe ici la position qu'occupait le cru dans les mythes de l'Amérique du Sud. L'instauration de la civilisation est marquée non plus par une opposition entre l'animal, qui mange cru, et l'homme, qui mange cuit, mais par une opposition entre les peuples réduits à vivre de leur production et ceux qui accèdent à la diversité grâce au commerce et à l'échange
Tristes tropiques by Claude Lévi-Strauss( Book )

44 editions published between 1951 and 2012 in 7 languages and held by 911 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This watershed work records Claude Lévi-Strauss's search for "a human society reduced to its most basic expression." From the Amazon basin through the dense upland jungles of Brazil, Lévi-Strauss found the societies he was seeking among the Caduveo, Bororo, Nambikwara, and Tupi-Kawahib. More than merely recounting his time in their midst, Tristes Tropiques places the cultural practices of these peoples in a global context and extrapolates a fascinating theory of culture that has given the book an importance far beyond the fields of anthropology and continental philosophy. The author's fresh approach, sense of humor, and openness to the sensuous mystique of the tropics make the scientific thrust of the book eminently accessible. -- Back cover

Claude Levi-Strauss, internationally known as a brilliant and sometimes controversial anthropologist, is also a skilled and sensitive photographer. Saudades do Brasil - "nostalgia for Brazil," from the title of a musical composition by Darius Milhaud - presents 180 of the more than 3,000 photographs Levi-Strauss took in Brazil between 1935 and 1939.
