Quand Lévi-Strauss dénonçait l'utilisation politique de l'identité nationale - LeMonde.fr
n 2005, Claude Lévi-Strauss prononçait un discours mettant en garde contre les dérives de politiques étatiques se fondant sur des principes d'identité nationale. "J'ai connu une époque où l'identité nationale était le seul principe concevable des relations entre les Etats. On sait quels désastres en résultèrent", disait-il.

"I lived during times where national identity was the only conceivable principle of inter-state relations. We know what kind of disasters resulted from this"

I therefore claim to show, not how men think in myths, but how myths operate in men's minds without their being aware of the fact. Levi-Strauss, Claude
