Anthropologists have, in recent years, taken renewed interest in interspecies sociality and communication. Part of this enterprise has been an attempt to locate anthropological alternatives to the theory of mind concept in psychology. How may an anthropological theory of mind inform multi species ethnography, particularly within a framework of sensory methodology? In light of these concerns, the author explores recent debates on mutual knowability in interspecies lifeworlds, focusing on the doing/undoing of communicative congruence in ethnographic examples of wolf-human (and other) relations in South Central Siberia. Of particular interest are ethnographically situated experiences of body orientation and expression within landscapes and through material implements, such as landscape formations.
