French neo-Marxist economic anthropologist and Africanist.

Meillassoux, a student of Georges Balandier, did fieldwork among the Guro (Gouro) of the Côte d'Ivoire: his thesis was published in 1964. In the 1970s he criticised Marshall Sahlins's use of the notion of "domestic mode of production." Meillassoux was a politically committed critic of social injustice.

He died on 3 January 2005.
