The Family System		
(for Claude Levi-Strauss)

The triangle is the father.  The circle is the mother.  The equals sign means marriage. The triangle attached by the bracket to the circle is the son.  The triangle attached to the circle by the line is the uncle.  If there is a plus sign between two shapes, it means that they like each other.  If there is a minus sign between two shapes, it means they do not get along. There will always be one plus sign and one minus sign.
