Claude Levi-Strauss @ 100

Happy birthday, Claude Lévi-Strauss!

The great French ethnologist, anthropologist, mythologist, thinker, public intellectual is turning 100 today — and still going strong!

Two books of his that were core to my own thinking: Tristes Tropiques, his autobiography and La Pensée Sauvage, translated as The Savage Mind (which loses the double meaning of “pensée” as 1) thought, 2) the flower we call pansy.)
