Analogy/Bricolage/Lévi-Strauss: there is undoubtedly something paradoxical in the notion of logic, whose terms stand in waste and fragments, traces of psychological and historical processes that as such lack every necessity.
As far as form is concerned, there is an analogy in them. This consists in the fact that their form itself is permeated by a certain quantity of content, which is approximately the same for all.
The significant images of the myth are, like the materials of the hobbyist, elements that can be defined according to two criteria: they have served as words of a formed speech that is "dismantled" by the mythical reflection; and they can still serve, for the same use or another use, provided that they are stripped of their first function.

Order/Nature/Culture/Lévi-Strauss: if nature and culture are perceived as two systems of differences between which there is a formal analogy, then the systematic character of each area is brought to the fore. The social groups are different from each other, but as part of the same whole, they remain solidary and the law of exogamy offers the means to reconcile this balanced contrast of diversity and unity.
