Tristes Tropiques

from the manufacturer

A milestone in the study of culture from the father of structural anthropology. This watershed work records Claude Lvi-Strausss search for a human society reduced to its most basic expression. From the Amazon basin through the dense upland jungles of Brazil, Lvi-Strauss found the societies he was seeking among the Caduveo, Bororo, Nambikwara, and Tupi-Kawahib. More than merely recounting his time in their midst, Tristes Tropiques places the cultural practices of these peoples in a global context and extrapolates a fascinating theory of culture that has given the book an importance far beyond the fields of anthropology and continental philosophy. The authors fresh approach, sense of humor, and openness to the sensuous mystique of the tropics make the scientific thrust of the book eminently accessible.
