In a broad sense, Lévi-Strauss's objectives in the understanding of history and anthropology are based on four principles: (a) true reality is never obvious and “its nature is already apparent in the care it takes to evade our attention”; (b) social science is not based upon events; (c) reality and experience might be complementary but “there is no continuity in the passage between them”; and (d) the social scientist's mission is “to understand being in relation to itself and not in relation to oneself” (Lévi-Strauss, 1963 and 1966).
Disagreeing with Levi-Strauss, Maurice Godelier states that “mythic thinking” is not only the thinking of savages, but also, by its status, a primitive thinking. He writes: “I think that I am disagreeing with Claude Lévi-Strauss because I do believe that mythic thinking is both undomesticated thinking and the thinking of primitives” (1973 : 385 ). Godelier's argument claims that mythical thinking is, essentially, constituted by processes of analogies, dominated by relations of similitude, as was, according to Foucault, the epistemological field of the West in the sixteenth century (1973:17-44).
Both approaches are equally valid” (Lévi-Strauss 1966:22). Lévi-Strauss insists on the relativity of the classical distinction between these two systems of ordering and acquiring knowledge. It is therefore better, instead of contrasting magic and science, to compare them as two parallel modes of acquiring knowledge. Their theoretical and practical results differ in value, for it is true that science is more successful than magic from this point of view, although magic foreshadows science in that it is sometimes also successful.
