Who was Claude Meillassoux?

Claude Meillassoux was a French neo-Marxist economic anthropologist and Africanist.

Meillassoux, a student of Georges Balandier, did fieldwork among the Guro of the Côte d'Ivoire: his thesis was published in 1964. In the 1970s he criticised Marshall Sahlins's use of the notion of "domestic mode of production". Meillassoux was throughout his life a politically committed critic of social injustice.

He is survived by his partner, Corinne Belliard, his son Quentin, and his granddaughter Alma.
