regular old Hegelian dialectics but just plagerizing it ? Any Hegelian knows that all oppostions are a unity and struggle of opposites, not just an opposition. Levi-Strauss's binary oppositions are just the beginning of his process.

I wasn't claiming L-S as a 'deconstructionist'. Derrida is indebted to Hegel yes. The crucial (though not sole) difference is in the idea of synthesis.
