Publisher Description

* En 1954-1955, un violent debat intellectuel opposa Roger Caillois a Claude Levi-Strauss autour du relativisme culturel. Prenant la forme d'une joute oratoire, ce conflit marqua ces deux grandes figures de la vie intellectuelle francaise. Par la suite, il est remarquable que Caillois se posait en theoricien du jeu, tandis que Levi-Strauss semblait eviter de relancer la polemique en se desinteressant du sujet. L'influence du structuralisme explique peut-etre en partie le manque d'interet que les ethnologues manifesterent alors pour les activites ludiques. * In the years 1954-1955, a violent intellectual debate opposed Roger Caillois to Claude Levi-Strauss around the issue of cultural relativism. This confrontation which took the form of an oratory joust has left profound marks on these two great Frech intellectual figures. It is rernarkable that afterwards, Caillios posed himself as a theorician of gaines, while Claude Levi-Strauss seemed to avoid the polemic by disinteresting himself from the topic. The lasting influence of structuralism may explain in part the lack of interest of ethnologists toward ludic activities.
