TL;DR: It is impossible that the rulers now on earth should make any benefit, or derive any the least shadow of authority from that, which is held to be the fountain of all power, Adam's private dominion and paternal jurisdiction.
Abstract: All these premises having, as I think, been clearly made out, it is impossible that the rulers now on earth should make any benefit, or derive any the least shadow of authority from that, which is held to be the fountain of all power, Adam's private dominion and paternal jurisdiction; so that he that will not give just occasion to think that all government in the world is the product only of force and violence, and that men live together by no other rules but that of beasts, where the strongest carries it, and so lay a foundation for perpetual disorder and mischief, tumult, sedition and rebellion, (things that the followers of that hypothesis so loudly cry out against) must of necessity find out another rise of government, another original of political power, and another way of designing and knowing the persons that have it, than what Sir Robert Filmer hath taught us.
TL;DR: The Savage Mind by Levi-Strauss as discussed by the authors is one of the most popular books in the history of ideas, and it is a most stimulating, informative and suggestive intellectual challenge.
Abstract: \"Every word, like a sacred object, has its place. No \"precis\" is possible. This extraordinary book must be read.\" Edmund Carpenter, \"New York Times Book Review \" \"No outline is possible; I can only say that reading this book is a most exciting intellectual exercise in which dialectic, wit, and imagination combine to stimulate and provoke at every page.\" Edmund Leach, \"Man \" \"Levi-Strauss's books are tough: very scholarly, very dense, very rapid in argument. But once you have mastered him, human history can never be the same, nor indeed can one's view of contemporary society. And his latest book, \"The Savage Mind,\" is his most comprehensive and certainly his most profound. Everyone interested in the history of ideas \"must\" read it; everyone interested in human institutions \"should \"read it.\" J. H. Plumb, \"Saturday Review\" \"A constantly stimulating, informative and suggestive intellectual challenge.\" Geoffrey Gorer, \"The Observer,\" London\
