“Reluctant to express himself in the media, Claude L??vi-Strauss has been careful not to make any comment on his reaching the age of one hundred. But in one of his very rare interviews, with Le Monde on the occasion of the Year of Brazil in France in 2005, he said ???We are in a world to which already I no longer belong. The world I knew, the world I loved, had 1.5 billion inhabitants. The world today has six billion humans. It is no longer mine???.

Claude L??vi-Strauss passed away… (November 3, 2009)
