Claude Lévi-Strauss (November 28, 1908)

From an obituary – November 2009 – in the Forward: “Like Emile Durkheim, the great sociologist whose mantle he picked up and wore very comfortably, Lévi-Strauss was a Jew. But in neither case, nor in those of many other Jewish social thinkers, is it easy to find explicit Jewish references in their lives or work.”
