Claude Lévi-Strauss Biography

Academic, writer, figure of melancholy, aesthete – Claude Lévi-Strauss (1908-2009) not only transformed his academic discipline, he also profoundly changed the way that we view ourselves and the world around us.

In this award-winning biography, historian Emmanuelle Loyer recounts Lévi-Strauss’s childhood in an assimilated Jewish household, his promising student years as well as his first forays into political and intellectual movements. As a young professor in 1935 Lévi-Strauss left Paris for São Paulo to teach sociology. His rugged expeditions into the Brazilian hinterland, where he discovered the Amerindian Other, made him into an anthropologist. The racial laws of the Vichy regime would force him to leave France yet again — this time for the US in 1941, where he became Professor Claude L. Strauss, to avoid confusion with the jeans manufacturer.

His return to France, after the war, ushered in the period during which he produced his greatest works: several decades of intense labour in which Lévi-Strauss reinvented anthropology, establishing it as a discipline that offered a new view on the world. In 1955, Tristes Tropiques offered indisputable proof of this the world over. During those years, Lévi-Strauss became something of a national monument, a celebrity intellectual in France. But he always claimed his perspective was a “view from afar,” enabling him to deliver incisive and subversive diagnoses of our waning modernity.

Loyer’s outstanding biography tells the story of a true intellectual adventurer whose unforgettable voice invites us to rethink questions of the human and the meaning of progress. Lévi-Strauss was less of a modern than he was our own great and disquieted contemporary.

The Author

Emmanuelle Loyer is Professor of Contemporary History at Sciences-Po, Paris. Her biography of Lévi-Strauss was awarded the Prix Femina essai in 2015.

Reviews

“The inspiration that continues to spring forth from the work of Lévi-Strauss is a mystery to many anthropologists. He has told us of the many influences on his work and commentators have argued for yet others but they don’t really account for his extraordinary originality and independence. Emmanuelle Loyer’s thorough account of his life and work may help us resolve this wonderful puzzle.”  – Maurice Bloch, London School of Economics

“Emmanuelle Loyer has produced a meticulously-researched, intelligent, and sensitive biography worthy of her subject, one of the greatest Francophone intellectuals of the 20th century. Critical yet generous, her portrait of Claude Lévi-Strauss rings true and comes alive on the page.” – Michael Harkin, University of Wyoming

Energias de Portugal and Sepio Systems

EDP, One of Europe’s Major Electricity Operators, Completes a Strategic Investment in the Cybersecurity Company Sepio Systems

Energias de Portugal, which ranks among Europe’s major electricity operators, and is one of Portugal’s largest business groups has completed a strategic investment in the Israel- and US-based cybersecurity company Sepio Systems. EDP is a vertically integrated utility company that has electricity, gas and renewable energy operations in 16 countries and EDP Renewables is the fourth wind power operator worldwide.

EDP is expanding partnerships in Cyber Security to further strengthen connectivity and resilience that are vital to the infrastructure, and advance new business opportunities. Over the last couple of years, attacks on critical infrastructure have surged, and the potential repercussions are significant. A loss of data is concerning, but a loss of electricity is catastrophic to both businesses and society.

“Sepio’s approach to protecting enterprises against attacks arising from rogue devices is very creative and a well-executed idea in the cybersecurity space, and we were even more impressed after experiencing it firsthand.” Said Luis Manuel, Board Member at EDP Ventures. “The software provides granular visibility into our assets and, best of all, allows us to define and enforce a security policy for hardware devices. We believe Sepio is well-positioned to protect assets in both the IT and OT domains and we look forward to supporting Sepio Systems to help them grow further.”

Also participating in the investment is Mindset Ventures, an international Venture Capital firm that supports the growth and development of innovative companies that provide solutions to the relevant markets in Latin America, and the existing investors – Pico Venture Partners and Founders Group.

The partnership with EDP will help Sepio Systems accelerate the development and deployment of Sepio’s Rogue Device Mitigation solution among utilities, financial institutes, and large enterprises in Europe.

Sepio Prime is the world’s first end-to-end solution that offers comprehensive mitigation of hardware-based attacks, including rogue peripherals, invisible network devices, and manipulated firmware. Sepio Prime has been successfully deployed in over 20 mid-sized to large banks, insurance, and telecom companies in the U.S., Singapore, Brazil, and Israel. The current install base secures over 600,000 workstations and network ports.

“The massive cyber-attacks and data breaches we see lately are due not just to the rise of cybercrime but also to the ease of getting hold of attack tools that were accessible to governments and intelligence organizations until only few years ago”, said Iftah Bratspiess, CEO of Sepio Systems. “We founded Sepio to help organizations address the rapidly growing threat of malicious hardware devices. By applying deep intelligence and hardware fingerprinting technology we can instantly and accurately detect and identify manipulated peripherals and network devices.”

Mr. Bratspiess added, “Having a top global vertically integrated utility such as EDP invest directly in Sepio is not only a vote of confidence in the company, but a testament to the significant risk organizations see in the uncontrolled use of hardware devices. In addition, the support and network of Mindset Ventures provides a huge leap forward in successfully engaging with top tier companies in Brazil. The new funding will fuel our technology roadmap as well as the expansion into new verticals and territories.”
