South Siberian Tyvan models of world interpretation
exemplify the flexibility and plurality of human
interpretation and social behaviour. Anett C. Oelschlaegel
demonstrates that local actors utilise 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.“
