Description - Introducing Levi Strauss and Structural Anthrophology by Boris Wiseman
Introducing Levi-Strauss and Structural Anthropology traces the development of Levi-Strauss' thought from his early proposition that the function of the incest taboo is to initiate an exchange of women between groups, to his identification of a timeless pensee sauvage at work in the processes of cultural creation. The book also pursues the major contribution that Levi-Strauss has mage to contemporary aesthetic theory. His work on Amerindian myth - which brings out the fundamental role of transformations in acts of creation - provides a key insight into the way art itself comes into being. Boris Wiseman's incisive text, superbly illustrated by Judy Groves, provides a brilliant introduction to a major 20th century thinker.
