Introducing Lévi-Strauss: A Graphic Guide
by Graphic Guide, A Author, Judy Groves Author and Boris Wiseman Author
This guide to the work of the great French anthropologist Claude Lévi-Strauss (1908–2009) traces the development and influence of his thought, from his early work on the function of the incest taboo to initiate an exchange of women between groups, to his identification of a timeless “wild” or “primitive” mode of thinking – a pensée sauvage – behind the processes of human culture. Accessibly written by Boris Wiseman and beautifully illustrated by Judy Groves, Introducing Lévi-Strauss also explores the major contribution that Lévi-Strauss made to contemporary aesthetic history – his work on American-Indian mythology provides a key insight into the way in which art itself comes into being. This is an essential introduction to a key thinker.
