22647 Lévi-Strauss           Discovered 1998 July 26 by E. W. Elst at the European Southern Observatory.
French anthropologist and ethnologist Claude Lévi-Strauss (1908-2009) introduced structuralism as the basis of human perception. Disillusioned with the study of philosophy at the Sorbonne, he went in 1935 to Brazil, where his research on Indian tribes culminated in Tristes Tropiques (1955) and La Pensée Sauvage (1962).
