Description
 
This French television documentary recounts the extraordinary career of the father of structural anthropology, Claude Levi-Strauss, whose theories not only impacted that field, but linguistics, mythology, and pop culture studies. Author of Tristes Tropiques and The Savage Mind, Levi-Strauss is a profound intellectual, a confirmed ecologist, a fierce defender of the diversity of peoples and cultures, and all with the temperament of an artist or poet. Consisting of selected interviews from the 1960s through the present, Claude Levi-Strauss Par Lui-Meme presents the anthropologist's story in his own words. In French or English. Letterboxed.
