Structural Anthropology

Basic Books, 7 1974 - 448
The structural method, first set forth in this epoch-making book, changed the very face of social anthropology. This reissue of a classic will reintroduce readers to Lévi-Strauss's understanding of man and society in terms of individualskinship, social organization, religion, mythology, and art.

I feel like such a butt giving this book a one star, but it's not that the book is bad -- it's not. It's just that I didn't like it, precisely what the * rating says. I'm thankful, though. Made me realise that Anthropology is not for me, despite all the other allure of this course.

Quite differant from the English empirical tradition but a tour de force - especially Chapter 1 on History and Anthropology.
