This book is designed for the use of teaching undergraduates in anthropology, linguistics, literary studies, philosophy and related disciplines faced with structuralist argument. It provides the prolegomena necessary to understand the final chapter of Levi-Strausss massive four-volume Mythologiques.

Some prior knowledge of anthropological literature is useful but not essential. The principal ethnographic source is the Book of Leviticus- this guide should help anyone who is trying to grasp the essentials of seminology - the general theory of how signs and symbols come to convey meaning.

The authors core thesis is that: the indices in non-verbal communication systems, like the sound elements in spoken language, do not have meaning as isolates, but only as members of set- the books special merit is that it makes this kind of jargon comprehensible in terms of our everyday experience
