Marilyn Strathern
2018 Balzan Prize for Social Anthropology
For the profoundly innovative and heuristic character of her critique of Western conceptual oppositions, such as individual/society, man/woman, nature/culture, singular/collective, subjectivity/objectivity, cause/effect, in favour of the importance accorded to the domestic sphere, the differential distinction of the sexes, the manipulation of symbols, relation, replication, agency.

Emeritus Professor, Social Anthropology, University of Cambridge
