Narrative Theory 

Levi Strauss argued that all narratives could be reduced down to binary opposites. Binary opposition (also binary system) is a pair of related terms or concepts that are opposite in meaning.

  • Americans Vs Native Americans 
  • Good Vs Evil
  • Science Vs Religion 
  • Weak Vs Strong 
  • East Vs West
  • Man Vs Women 
After studying Hundreds of Myths from around the world, and observed that we make sense of the world, using binary opposites.
He observed that all narratives are organised around the conflict between such binary opposites.
