Anthony Auerbach explores three aspects of the origins of radical anthropology: an intellectual lineage which reaches to the roots of anthropology as a science; a biographical arc which stretches between scholarship and political praxis; and a founding text: Chris Knight's unpublished doctoral thesis, Menstruation and the Origins of Culture: A reconsideration of Lévi-Strauss’s work on symbolism and myth (1987).
