The Cambridge Companion to Levi-Strauss, Paperback / softback Book

The Cambridge Companion to Levi-Strauss Paperback / softback

Edited by Boris (University of Durham) Wiseman


Claude Levi-Strauss is one of the major thinkers of the modern age.

Regarded as a crucial figure in the development of structuralism, his writings are studied across a wide range of disciplines, including anthropology, philosophy and literary studies.

The Cambridge Companion to Levi-Strauss presents a major reassessment of his work and influence.

The fifteen specially-commissioned essays in this volume engage with the controversies that have surrounded his ideas, and they probe the concealed influences and cliches that have obscured a true understanding of his work.

The contributors are experts drawn from a number of fields, demonstrating the durability and importance of Levi-Strauss's work in the academy.

Written for students and researchers alike, these incisive, jargon-free essays will be essential reading for anybody who wishes to gain a deeper understanding of this important thinker.
