Pages that make the book We are all cannibals father of the modern anthropology, Claude Levi-Strauss, wrote at the request of the editorial board of the Italian daily La Repubblica. Texts written between 1989 and 2000 are now published as a collection of stories for the first time. Starting every time with a current topic, Levi-Strauss tackled some of the major contemporary debates. Whether it's an epidemic of "mad cow disease", the forms of cannibalis , racial prejudice associated with ritual circumcision procedures of male and female children, the famous anthropologist and ethnologist encourages us to a deeper in the understanding of the society in which we live. Levi-Strauss also re-analyzed an opus of Michel de Montaigne, the author of the Essay, which is fundamental to Western modernity.

The texts in this book bear the stamp of the last years of the twentieth century and confirm lucidity and pronounced pessimism of this great anthropologist. And this book, like the previous one (Anthropology and the modern world), in the original French edition appeared posthumously, in 2013, four years after Lévi-Strauss's death and testified about his intellectual vigor and the constant, relentless commitment to the scientific and anthropological thought.
