From Montaigne To Montaigne

Claude Lévi-Strauss | University of Minnesota Press


Two previously unpublished lectures charting the renowned anthropologist’s intellectual engagement with the sixteenth-century French essayist Michel de Montaigne

Bracketing the career of one of the most celebrated anthropologists of the twentieth century, two lectures (from 1937 and 1992) reveal how Claude Lévi-Strauss’s ethnography begins and ends with the French essayist Michel de Montaigne. Published here for the first time, these lectures offer new insight into the development of ethnography and the thinking of one of its most important practitioners.
