Conceived as a work in social theory, this book conducts an examination of the rigour of the concepts and categories which one particular author—Claude Lévi-Strauss—constructs and sets to work in three particular areas: first, in the philosophy and methodology of the social sciences; second, in the general understanding of the nature and constitution of societies as totalities and of the constituent structures of a particular type of society; and, third, in the conception of specific symbolic and ideological practices within societies.
