about this item

South Siberian Tyvan models of world interpretation exemplify the flexibility and plurality of human interpretation and social behaviour. Author Anett C. Oelschlaegel demonstrates that local actors utilize models that are both complementary and contradictory. "...below the...declamatory level, however, most Tyvans were undogmatic pragmaticians, who constantly contradicted themselves or displayed a consistent inconsistency in their subjectively intended meaning."--Professor emeritus Bernhard Streck, U. of Leipzig (Series: Halle Studies in the Anthropology of Eurasia, Vol. 32) [Subject: Social Anthropology, Siberian Studies]
