structuralism comix

A few posts back I suggested that Logicomix take on the intellectual history of structuralism - its story seems to parallel the one they told in their first graphic novel on the search for the foundations of mathematics.

I guess they had already thought of it - check out their new comic about one of structuralism's founders, Claude Levi-Strauss. Is there a comic on Ferdinand de Saussure (pictured above) forthcoming?

BTW: While you're browsing, don't forget to check out Math Teachers at Play 24, over at Let's Play Math. :)
