-[[France|French]] [[film producer]] [[Christian Fechner]] died today. He was 64. He produced a great number of films but is best-remembered for ''[[L'Aile ou la Cuisse]]'', ''[[Camille Claudel (film)|Camille Claudel]]'', ''[[Les Amants du Pont-Neuf]]'', ''[[Élisa]]'', and ''[[La Fille sur le pont]]''.+

-That last film, with its English title ''[[Girl on a Bridge]]'' was directed by [[Patrice Leconte]] and was featured on this blog two years ago[http://jahsonic.wordpress.com/2006/09/17/girl-on-the-bridge-1999-patrice-leconte/]. The film is superb, it is now [[World Cinema Classics|World Cinema Classic]] #72.+

-''Bertalda, Assailed by Spirits'' by [[Theodore Von Holst]]+
-:"Bertalda then showed the piece of gold she was given to the goblins below, and they laughed themselves half-dead over it and hissed at her. At last they all pointed at me with their metal-stained fingers, and more and more wildly, and more and more densely, and more and more madly, the [[swarm]] of spirits came clambering up to her." --remix of ''[[Undine]]''+

-[[Damsel in distress]] trope in ''[[Undine]]'', actually a take on [[tentacle eroticism]] of which I am so fond.+

-[[Claude Lévi-Strauss]] (born [[November 28]], [[1908]]) will be a hundred coming Friday. I'm trying to find a good angle to approach his work. So far it is [[structure]], [[anthropologica]] and [[taboo]].+
- +
-;structure+
-The stucture angle leads to [[structuralism]], a [[French theory|French intellectual movement]] of the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s, based on [[Russian Formalism]] and the [[Prague school of structuralism]].+
- +
-That Claude Lévi-Strauss sought to investigate structures became apparent with the publication of his debut work ''[[The Elementary Structures of Kinship]]'' (1949). The word structure in its title betrays its conceptual affiliations to what was later to be called [[structuralism]].+
- +
-In a way, this is a bit facile since structure is a fundamental notion covering the whole of [[science]]; from a child's [[verbal description]] of a [[Snow|snowflake]], to the detailed [[scientific analysis]] of the properties of [[botany]], the concept of structure is an essential foundation of nearly every mode of [[inquiry]] and [[discovery]] in [[science]], [[philosophy]], and [[art]].+
- +
-I think the new approach heralded by structuralism was the move a way from [[dogmatism]], [[great man theory]] and other subjective "methods" to a more [[genre theory|genre theoretic]] approach in the [[social sciences]].+
- +
-;anthropologica and taboo +
- +
-Our next angle is the angle of [[anthropologica]] and [[taboo]]. The interest in anthropologica, my neoglogism for sexual anthropology started with [[Margaret Mead]] also deserve mention here as well as ''[[The Sexual Life of Savages in North-Western Melanesia]]''. Strauss's work ''[[The Elementary Structures of Kinship]]'' dealt with such notions as [[alliance theory]], the [[incest taboo]] and yes, the [[exchange of women]], what we would call swinging in contemporary society. These subjects gave Strauss his place in the awakening [[sexual revolution]]. +
- +
-''[[The Raw and the Cooked]]'' (1964) and his memoirs ''[[Tristes Tropiques]]'' (1955).+
