A Study About The Savage Mind Architecture
In the following essay I will address Lévi-Strauss's use of the terms 'bricolage' and 'engineer'. Concentrating mainly on the first chapter of the book he wrote in 1962, 'The Savage Mind', I will explain my understanding of the use of these terms and the way in which he uses language structure as a basis for his findings. I will also look at the disparity he feels exists between 'myth' and 'science'. The use of the terms of 'bricolage' and 'engineer' can be quite ambiguous as Lévi-Strauss is looking for something which works universally and connects everything.
