This chapter analyses anthropologist Claude Lévi-Strauss' interpretation of Ferdinand de Saussure's ideas about linguistics, explaining that Lévi-Strauss is commonly cited as one of the most prominent examples of the influence of Saussure's teachings outside the domain of linguistics proper. It discusses Lévi-Strauss' view that Saussure's linguistics is structuralist, and provides an account of the relationship between the ideas of Lévi-Strauss and Saussure.
