Structural anthropology is based on Claude Levi-Strauss' s idea that people think about the world in terms of binary opposites—such as high and low, inside and outside, person and animal, life and death—and that every culture can be understood in terms of these opposites. "From the very start," he wrote, "the process of visual perception makes use of binary oppositions. " Levi-Strauss' approach arose, fundamentally, from the philosophy of Hegel who explains that in every situation there can be found two opposing things and their resolution; he called these "thesis, antithesis, and synthesis. " Levi-Strauss argued that, in fact, cultures have this structure. This approach, he felt, made for fresh new ideas. He showed, for example, how opposing ideas would fight and also be resolved in the rules of marriage, in mythology, and in ritual.

|Protein structure prediction and folding dynamics. An investigation of protein structure and folding using structural profiles Книга по Требованию Katrin W. |
The first is the question how a protein' s amino acid sequence determines its structure, the second aspect is the physical process of protin folding. Both questions are addressed using so-called structural profiles as one-dimensional representations of protein structure. This book investigates the protein folding problem from two different angles. The three-dimensional shape of proteins is crucial for their biological function. Proteins carry out a variety of vital functions in every living organism, ranging from enzyme proteins regulating biochemical reactions to motor proteins causing the contraction and movement of muscles.

|The Worlds of G?k?y? Mythology. A Mytho-Structural Analysis of a Culture's Modes of Thought and Practice Книга по Требованию MICHAEL W. |
Additionally, he adopts an approach that essentialises structural unity of G? k? y? mythology and appropriates cultural signification to mythological structures, defined as Worlds. Dr. Wainaina proposes that G? k? y? modes of cultural thought and practice can be derived from analysis of transformational relationships of the Worlds of the culture' s mythology . Come on a brilliantly guided voyage of mythological discovery at the end of which you will certainly appreciate and easily assimilate its system. In "Structuralist Poetics" (1975), Culler postulates that ' . . . the institution of mythology leads an uncertain existence and few could be said to have assimilated its system' (p. 50). In this book, Dr. Wainaina seeks to address this ' uncertain existence' with particular regard to G? k? y? mythology. He challenges both the exclusiveness of the typological definitions of myth previously used, and the atomistic approaches to its analyses and interpretations. Consequently, he adopts the seminal Okpewhorean aestheticist position that myth is the basic imaginative resource from which the larger cultural values derive and that any narrative of the oral tradition is a myth (Okpewho,1983).
