The raw and the cooked. Just what a food site needs.
OK, I would have bet he died years ago.

I forgot he was still alive, but I am not for once gobsmacked.

He did much better than some of the other French theorists who came to prominence in the days of structuralism. Roland Barthes run over by a milk cart, Louis Althusser incarcerated for murdering his wife after undergoing analysis with Lacan. And so on.

I've read very little of Levi-Strauss's actual work, but his outlook was important and very influential in dethroning phenomenology and existentialism - philosophies perceived as individualistic (or subjectivist).

i really liked his 529 jeans, but they're not available any more.

my annoying opinions: whisky, food and occasional cultural commentary

 

 

current restaurant review: kinjiro (los angeles)

 

current whisky review: old grand-dad 114

 

current recipe: meatball curry, kerala style

 

 

facts are meaningless. you could use facts to prove anything that's even remotely true!

Plainly you are feeling better.

Brings back so many wacky college memories. RIP Claude

“One thing kids like is to be tricked. For instance, I was going to take my little nephew to Disneyland, but instead I drove him to an old burned-out warehouse. 'Oh, no!', I said, 'Disneyland burned down.' He cried and cried, but I think that deep down he thought it was a pretty good joke. I started to drive over to the real Disneyland, but it was getting pretty late.”

I was not shocked that he was still alive only because the topic came up recently.
