Kommunikationswissenschaft ist eine Integrationsdisziplin. So lautet nicht nur die gängige Selbstdefinition im Rahmen von Fachgesellschaften, sondern so wird auch fachhistorisch die Entwicklung des Faches im deutschen Sprachraum beschrieben. „Integration“ scheint dabei ein Fluchtpunkt der Entwicklung und ein Desiderat zu sein und ein Prozess, der nicht abgeschlossen, doch weit genug fortgeschritten ist, um ihn in seinen Konturen zu beschreiben.

Example text

It took him just over two years and his journey is thought to be the longest by a cat on record. If you put down food and the cat eats, it’s hungry. —Larry Madrid • Because of the chlorine in tap water, it should be left to stand for twenty-four hours before being given to a cat–the chemical irritates parts of a cat’s sensitive nose. • Even though they can’t taste them, cats love sweets. • Cats are creatures of habit–they prefer to dine in the same place, at the same time, and in a quiet spot. A clean bowl is a must.

More Nonsense, Pictures, Rhymes, Botany etc. was published later the same year, and Laughable Lyrics in 1877. Lear also wrote travel books which, like his poems, he illustrated himself. A somewhat melancholy man prone to loneliness, Lear was devoted to his tabby cat, Foss, who became a part of his master’s solitary life, and who was the inspiration for the cat in “The Owl and the Pussycat,”–Lear’s drawings of Foss accompany the poem. As cats go, Foss was no beauty; according to Lear, he wore an almost constantly startled expression, was somewhat corpulent, and had a shortened tail, thanks to a superstitious servant who believed that this mutilation would stop poor Foss from straying.

A clean bowl is a must. • Chocolate is toxic to a cat. As little as sixteen ounces (450 grams) can kill a cat, and darker chocolate is more dangerous. • Be wary of tinned cat food that is particularly red in color. It may contain sodium nitrate, which is a carcinogen, and pet-food manufacturers are not required to list this chemical on their labels. • Raw or undercooked meat and eggs are all as dangerous to cats as they are to humans. • The average cat would, given the opportunity, consume about ten mice per day.
