In addresses written for a wide general audience, one of the twentieth century's most prominent thinkers, Claude Lévi-Strauss, here offers the insights of a lifetime on the crucial questions of human existence. Responding to questions as varied as 'Can there be meaning in chaos?', 'What can science learn from myth?' and 'What is structuralism?', Lévi-Strauss presents, in clear, precise language, essential guidance for those who want to learn more about the potential of the human mind.

Industry Reviews

'Some thinkers are influential, a few create schools, a very few characterize a period... it is possible that just as we speak of the age of Aquinas or of Goethe, later ages will speak of our time as the age of Levi-Strauss... he is a maker of the modern mind.' - James Redfield
