He is 100. He died. A period to that magnficient work done by him.
I don't know how many of you even know him. His name Claude Levi-Strauss often reminds me of the Levi's jeans but then he was not remotely connected to that. He was an anthropologist and ethnologist who did commendable work on myths, tribal communities, identity, patterns of thought and other fascinating ideas.
The study of literature was incomplete without his books. When we read about myths and the human identity through myths, his theories came in quite handy. Strauss' anthropological theories are quite fascinating and interesting.
I don't want to write everything about him in this post but I would definitely like you to go and read up more on him and his insightful work.
Strauss, may you live on!
