Memory eternal, Claude Levi-Strauss!
« on: November 04, 2009, 01:17:57 PM »
A giant intellectual, the anthropologist, Claude Levi-Strauss died today at age 100.  His works were particularly interesting to me since, as a teacher of mythology, he had a lot of interesting things to say about mythology and society.

Memory eternal!
