Robert A. Paul presents a comprehensive interpretation of Tibetan cultural symbolism from a theoretical position that integrates psychoanalytic theory with aspects of structuralism and symbolic anthropology. He shows that may features of the culture of the Sherpas of Nepal as well as many of the best -know monuments of Tibetan literature and religion are symbolic responses to a central paradox inherent in the succession of generations.
