Marcel Mauss (; 10 May 1872 – 10 February 1950) was a French sociologist. The nephew of Émile Durkheim, Mauss' academic work traversed the boundaries between sociology and anthropology. Today, he is perhaps better recognised for his influence on the latter discipline, particularly with respect to his analyses of topics such as magic, sacrifice, and gift exchange in different cultures around the world. Mauss had a significant influence upon Claude Lévi-Strauss, the founder of structural anthropology.Barth, Fredrik (2005). One Discipline, Four Ways: British, German, French, and American Anthropology. University of Chicago Press, p.208, Quote: "Marcel Mauss' two most influential followers were Claude Levi-Strauss (b.1908) and Louis Dumont (1911–1998). The impact of his work on both of them was strong." His most famous work is The Gift (1925).
