In human thermodynamics, an entropologist is an anthropologist whose studies and theories rest on the prediction of the ultimate thermodynamic leveling of all culture. [1] The term is a derivative of French anthropologist and philosopher Claude Lévi-Strauss' 1960s concept of entropology. In some scenarios, an entropologist is considered as any literary writer who uses the verbal ideas of entropy and disintegration. [2]
