Anthropologist Claude Lévi-Strauss Remembered

News broke today that Claude Lévi-Strauss, one of France’s tow­er­ing intel­lec­tu­als, has died. He was 100 years old. The New York Times has a lengthy obit that cov­ers the career of the anthro­pol­o­gist who brought us “struc­tural­ism” and helped us look at diverse cul­tures in new ways. NPR has also aired a short piece (in audio) that high­lights Lévi-Strauss’ intel­lec­tu­al accom­plish­ments. You can lis­ten below.

    No, this is not my extra cred­it sub­mis­sion, though I’d like to be.
    It is a short record­ed inter­view with a syn­op­sis of Levi-Strauss’s his work.
