For this reason, research strategies in the two disciplines are very similar – not to mention that anthropologists often have to deal with forms of human civilization with whom it is hardly possible to communicate, and thus have to formulate methods that can make research possible without linguistic interaction. Evidently, and even more so, zoosemioticians face the same problem. Among the many other specialized fields that discuss topics of potential zoosemiotic interest one might mention at least art research, linguistics, discourse analysis, phenomenology and culturology.

Griffin 1976: 3–4) A position like Griffin’s, courageous at the times, gave cognitive ethology in the long run a more established and visible role, and a large following, too. Zoosemiotics was one of the fields that took up the challenge. Sebeok (1981) contains already several hints in that direction, while, in more recent times, it is safe to say that most efforts in zoosemiotic research have explicitly embraced this approach, present companion included. Such a development must be considered a significant step forward, and even a crucial presupposition in order for zoosemiotics to exist, at least in the sense of an autonomous semiotics-based discipline.
