Kesan for They constrain the relations of individuals without those individuals necessarily becoming aware of them. Like those who cannot see the forest for the trees, individuals in society do not generally notice the structures that affect their behavior. They fail to perceive these structures because they are focused on the behavior of other individuals like themselves. Claude Lvi-Strauss, a French structural anthropologist, held that the myths that ground social life do not find their ultimate origins in the creative efforts of individual authors. Myths reflect the structure of the collective human mind. Human beings necessarily think and communicate in certain ways, according to set mental patterns, such as binary oppositions or dichotomies. Totemic and kinship systems also evidence these structured patterns, which reproduce themselves and their effects in all cultures at all times. Kesan 2016.
