a) a coherent and rigorous ontology of human communication is missing;

b) communication as discipline has no thoroughly explicit ontology;

c) the current rudimentary ontology of communication is under the standards of a rigorous and robust ontology.

a) the fact that the attitude and behavior of the communication discipline to take seriously as a discipline was established only in 1990’s;

b) the fact that a discipline without a secular past, communication cultivates itself as always being at the beginning;
