O knihe

Structural anthropology is based on Claude Levi-Strauss's idea that people think about the world in terms of binary opposites-such as high and low, inside and outside, person and animal, life and death-and that every culture can be understood in terms of these opposites. 'From the very start,' he wrote, 'the process of visual perception makes use of binary oppositions.' Levi-Strauss' approach arose, fundamentally, from the philosophy of Hegel who explains that in every situation there can be found two opposing things and their resolution; he called these 'thesis, antithesis, and synthesis.' Levi-Strauss argued that, in fact, cultures have this structure. He showed, for example, how opposing ideas would fight and also be resolved in the rules of marriage, in mythology, and in ritual. This approach, he felt, made for fresh new ideas.
