Eduardo Viveiros de Castro

by Claude Levi-Strauss

"I hold Eduardo Viveiros de Castro's thoughts and work in high regard. Through his texts and teachings, he has elevated Brazilian anthropology to the highest, worldwide level. He is not merely an admirable ethnographer. No one, among his colleagues, has better managed to formulate such original and profound theses about Amerindian thought as he has. In doing so, Viveiros do Castro has given field research a philosophical reach from which the collection of human sciences will benefit."

Claude Levi-Strauss, June 2003.
