The Savage Mind

Claude Levi-Strauss

The Savage Mind was one of the earliest works of structural anthropology and had a large influence on the field of anthropology.

The book also played a role within the larger currents of structuralism and post-structuralism. The application of bricolage to social structure provided the inspiration for Jacques Derrida’s essay “Structure, Sign and Play”. The idea that social structures can be transposed and recontextualized also plays a large role in Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari’s Capitalism and Schizophrenia.
