French Structuralism

If the title has meaning for you, then you know where this review is headed, if not it would be wise to learn a bit about various "schools of thought" that have developed in academia, especially in the area of Classics and History. A classic, this work attempts to find the origins of Greek thought through the reconstuction of mythology and religion -- there is, by the way, a difference between these. Vernant's work always shows new insights and new avenues but he is so tied to the structionalist concepts that I believe he makes some assumptions without ample proof. While it may be difficult to find all the answers when dealing with dead civilizations, it does not mean that we have to abandon the attempt to find evidence and discover the realities. A must read for anyone interested in myth theory or Greek thought so you are aware of all the ideas which have come before.
