One of the world's leading anthropologists assesses the work of the founder of structural anthropology As a young man, Maurice Godelier was Claude Levi-Strauss's assistant. Since then, Godelier has drawn on this experience to develop a profound and intimate grasp on the writings of his former teacher, one of the most influential thinkers of the twentieth century. Meticulously researched, Levi-Strauss: A Critical Study of His Thought will prove indispensable to students of Levi-Strauss and to structural anthropologists more generally. It is a compelling and comprehensive study destined to become the definitive work on the evolution of Levi-Strauss's ideas, at the heart of which lies his analysis of kinship and myth.
