Structural anthropology by Claude Lévi-Strauss( Book )

413 editions published between 1958 and 2019 in 10 languages and held by 5,748 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 savage mind by Claude Lévi-Strauss( Book )

304 editions published between 1962 and 2018 in 14 languages and held by 4,100 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author demonstrates how each culture has its own system of the concepts and categories derived from experience and imposed by the surrounding natural world. Through the order in the naming of plants and animals, concepts of space and time, myths and rituals, primitive societies engage in a high level of abstract reasoning different from but not necessarily inferior to that involved in cultivated "systematic thought."

As Levi-Strauss freely explores the mythologies of the Americas, with occasional incursions into European and Japanese folklore, tales of sloths and squirrels interweave with discussions of Freud, Saussure, "signification," and plays by Sophocles and Labiche. Levi-Strauss critiques psychoanalytic interpretation and defends the interpretive powers of structuralism

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

15 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 1,357 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 information

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

44 editions published between 1991 and 2009 in 5 languages and held by 1,095 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

La voie des masques by Claude Lévi-Strauss( Book )

84 editions published between 1975 and 2004 in 5 languages and held by 676 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La première édition de cette étude a paru en deux volumes dans une édition luxueuse chez Skira, en 1975. Rappelons que pour la première fois, Lévi-Strauss y étendait aux oeuvres plastiques que sont les masques la méthode originale qu'il applique depuis un quart de siècle à l'étude des mythes, et cela en utilisant un art qui l'a toujours fasciné, celui des Indiens de la côte nord-américaine du Pacifique. Dans cette nouvelle édition, l'illustration a perdu sa prééminence au profit du texte qui, lui, a presque doublé. L'auteur a en effet joint à l'exposé initial trois études parues antérieurement dans des publications spécialisées différentes et qui portent sur le même sujet. Quelques hors-texte en couleurs illustrent des spécimens de masques, le reste des illustrations étant en noir et blanc
