Claude Lévi-Strauss

On comprend enfin que les especes naturelles ne sont pas choisies parce que “bonnes a manger” mais parce que “bonnes a penser”’ [‘We understand in the end that natural species are chosen not because they are “good to eat” but because they are “good to think”’]. (Lévi-Strauss, Triste Tropiques, 1962, 128; quoted in Rebranding Belfast: Chromatopes of Post-Conflict, in Signs and Society, vol. 4, no. S1 (Supplement 2016), pp.138-62; p.157n.).
