French anthropologist and successor to Claude Lévi-Strauss at the Collège de France (Chair of Comparative Studies of African Societies from 1982 to 1998, now emeritus professor). Her work deals mainly with the theory of the difference between men and women, of alliances and on the prohibition of incest (theories based on the notion of exchange of women). In addition to Lévi-Strauss, she was also influenced by Alfred Radcliffe-Brown.
