 Claude Levi-Strauss (1908-2009) French ethnologist and anthropologist and theorist of Anthropology, is known in the world as the "father of modern anthropology". He has gained a reputation in the field of anthropology among anthropologists and scholars, because of his structuralist theory as well as their own method of proving this theory. He is considered as the greatest theoretician of structuralism. His studies include a review of the "basic structure of kinship" and "the structure of myths". In this article, we will see how Claude Levi-Strauss split the constituent units of "myths" and "kinship ties" to show a new aspect of them. This article intends to give his definition of structuralism, mythic structure, elementary structures of family, work and pay their relationship with linguistics and point her separation with other theorists, linguiststs and anthropologist like Saussure, Jakobson, Freud, etc. In this article we see how his studies in the field of "structure" help us understand new insights on human being.
