Structural anthropology by Claude Lévi-Strauss( Book )

302 editions published between 1919 and 2012 in 11 languages and held by 4,416 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 )

41 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in 6 languages and held by 1,087 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
Tristes tropiques by Claude Lévi-Strauss( Book )

42 editions published between 1955 and 2016 in 6 languages and held by 917 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

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

Saudades do Brasil : a photographic memoir by Claude Lévi-Strauss( Book )

11 editions published in 1995 in 3 languages and held by 551 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. While serving as professor of sociology at the University of Sao Paulo, the young ethnographer made expeditions among the natives of Mato Grosso and Southern Amazonia that resulted in numerous publications, most notably Tristes Tropiques. Most of these photographs are published here for the first time

We are all cannibals and other essays by Claude Lévi-Strauss( Book )

3 editions published in 2016 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On Christmas Eve 1951, Santa Claus was hanged and then publicly burned outside of the Cathedral of Dijon in France. That same decade, ethnologists began to study the indigenous cultures of central New Guinea, and found men and women affectionately consuming the flesh of the ones they loved. "Everyone calls what is not their own custom barbarism," said Montaigne. In these essays, Claude Lévi-Strauss shows us behavior that is bizarre, shocking, and even revolting to outsiders but consistent with a people's culture and context. These essays relate meat eating to cannibalism, female circumcision to medically assisted reproduction, and mythic thought to scientific thought. They explore practices of incest and patriarchy, nature worship versus man-made material obsessions, the perceived threat of art in various cultures, and the innovations and limitations of secular thought. Lévi-Strauss measures the short distance between "complex" and "primitive" societies and finds a shared madness in the ways we enact myth, ritual, and custom. Yet he also locates a pure and persistent ethics that connects the center of Western civilization to far-flung societies and forces a reckoning with outmoded ideas of morality and reason." -- Publisher's description
