Teaching at LSU
After I came to LSU, I realized that to teach these graduate students, they needed something that broke them from their mold. It was well-advised, I’m happy to say. I wasn’t a rabble-rouser or knocking down any idols or icons, but I certainly was countering an ingrained Freudian [orientation]. . . Nobody there had any different ideas.
Here we were, all trying to give a student an understanding of the nature of culture. They may have called it something else, but that’s what it was: Man’s relationship to man, or man’s relationship to the environment.
