"Language is a form of human reason, which has its internal logic of which man knows nothing." -- Claude Levi-Strauss
Claude Lévi-Strauss (; (28 November 1908 — 30 October 2009) was a French anthropologist and ethnologist, and has been called the "father of modern anthropology".
He argued that the "savage" mind had the same structures as the "civilized" mind and that human characteristics are the same everywhere. These observations culminated in his famous book Tristes Tropiques, which positioned him as one of the central figures in the structuralist school of thought, where his ideas reached into fields including the humanities, sociology and philosophy. Structuralism has been defined as "the search for the underlying patterns of thought in all forms of human activity."
He was honored by universities throughout the world and held the chair of Social Anthropology at the Collège de France (1959—1982); he was elected a member of the Académie Française in 1973.
