In 'Les Structures �l�mentaires de la Parent�', the early opus magnum of
French Structuralism, L�vi-Strauss tries to explain the systems of
kinship and marriage in their enormous diversity and their frequently
bizarre institutions, by means of a single principle: the exchange.
Exchange is perceived to be the manifestation of fundamental structural
constants of the human mind which may also be discerned in other
subsystems of culture, most obviously in language. This book represents
the first great result of the author's life-long research, dedicated to
exploring this relationship, which also led him into the fields of the
classification-systems of language and of mythology.
