ETHNOLOGY AND PRAGUE STRUCTURALISM II: CLAUDE LÉVI-STRAUSS
Conceiving of the work of Claude Levi-Strauss as a sort of ethnological parallel to the Linguistic Circle of Prague, the author is dealing with the possibilities and results of Levistraussian application and inspiration derived from the Praguian phonology. Nevertheless: whereas Nicolai S. Trubetzkoy's influence seems to be dominating in the Elementary Structures of Kinship, the Mythologiques as a whole manifest a very massive and autonomous development of one Jakobsonian concept known as a primary triangle under the form of culinary triangle.
