The “colder” a society becomes, the more pronounced its endeavor to preserve the characteristics of its traditional culture as unchanged as possible. A culture is considered the “hotter,” the greater its impetus toward a radical and rapid modernization of society is. It was this model which Claude Lévi-Strauss set against Eurocentric ethnography and its distinction between “primitive,” i.e., close-to-nature, and “developed” industrialized societies in La Pensée sauvage (1962; The Savage Mind, 1966).
