Introducing Lvi-Strauss is a guide to the work of the great French anthropologist Claude Lvi-Strauss (1908-2009). The book brilliantly traces the development and influence of Lvi-Strauss' 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 pense sauvage - behind the processes of human culture. Accessibly written by Boris Wiseman and beautifully illustrated by Judy Groves, Introducing Lvi-Strauss also explores the major contribution that Lvi-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.
