'Boris Wiseman, who was in charge of editing The Cambridge Companion to Levi-Strauss (2009), has reexamined this 'work' in terms of the relation between anthropology and aesthetics, with an admirable capacity to reappraise texts thanks to the use of examples and comparisons.' Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute
'Wiseman brings aesthetics back into anthropology as a philosophical dimension that returns to the romantic project of reconciling the intellect and the senses. This allows him to read together texts that Levi-Strauss dedicated to art with proper production of anthropological science.' Frederic Keck, Journal of the Royal Astronomical Institute
"Wiseman's astonishingly thorough, sympathetic, and comprehensive study is a most persuasive tribute to the work of anthropology's towering centenarian." - Museum Anthropology Review
