Note, however, that Maturana argued very vocally that this appropriation of autopoietic theory was conceptually unsound, as it presupposes the autonomy of communications from actual persons. All of those beautiful niklaz.introduo mediations and speculations, all of the lihmann are bad things.

The book begins with the argument that current approaches to constitutionalism remain tied to a state-based conception of constitutions, and overlooks underlying structural transformations that trigger the emergence of constitutional forms of ordering. Social systems are defined by Luhmann not as action but as recursive communication.

Niklas Luhmann

Views Read Edit View history. Thus, in line with the solipsism of which he is commonly accused, Luhmann devises what he has called the realistic cognitive theory Luhmann, b: On the subject of open systems, see Morin, With his Theory of Social Systems, he proposes the reduction of the world’s complexity.

Hence, complexity is not one or another, but both, that is to say, the unit of a multiplicity.

According to Comte, only the scientific rationality, the model of Physics, is able to establish the necessary nexuses and objective laws that exist between the forms of knowledge and social reality Ibid: It is argued that the concept provides a very useful overall framework, but that its usefulness might be enhanced when combined with more concrete studies of the actual function of networks in the EU context, just as the network concept should be more directly combined with an attempt to develop a conceptual framework for the juridification of networks.


As to the internal complexity, it comes across the Mertonian tradition of sociology, particularly the differentiation and institutionalization of the scientific disciplines. Concerning the discussion on order and disorder, see Passis-Pasternak, This is what Luhmann calls the multidimensionality of the complexity Luhmann, a.

What is complex in the complex world? Niklas Luhmann and the theory of social systems

The European society reached this stage, at the end of the 18th century, and the theoretical-scientific self-description of science just now seems to be reaching this point, with Kuhn and others Luhmann, b: The following dialogue deals particularly with this gap.

However, the social theory faced, according to Luhmann, two problems: Instead it produces the temporalization of the complexity in the consecutiveness of what is different. The relation between the elements can grow exponentially when they are multiplied, and the system, consequently, grows.

The world as a unit of the past and the future, observer and observed one, Ego and Alter Ego Corsi et. The philosopher Rafael Capurro dealt with this question in the late ‘s in his PhD thesis on the concept of information.

This is the reason why the niklas.introdio as a category was chosen by Luhmann as the ultimate reference. Other system operations appear within the economic field of references only insofar as this economic code can be applied to them.

It is in this context that the attempts at a General Sisttemas of the Systems can be found, among the different disciplines that have the extreme complexity of the world as the main problem of the theory. It is used to provide a general framework at the level of Gesellschaftstheorie social theory in the sense that it provides insights into the sisfemas structure of society and thereby into the context within which legal processes unfold.

The social sciences, in their first century, would have the same proposals as a model, printed in the ‘s Positivism, mostly in Auguste Comte And it is this distinction that makes it possible to representthe coercion put into the selection of complexity one side of the form, the other one being the complete relation of the elements in the systems that process sense.


It also can not be seem as an ds, since each environment presupposes an interior that, in turn, does not belong to the environment. If it is possible, it is possible only in the world. The complexity is captured by the observation.

Little by little, it prepared itself to deal with it: The intention will be divided into the analysis of the reduction of internal and external complexity, but presupposing a process that works according to its own operative basis. Although Amstutz departs from a legal dls, his theory is in fact projecting a mirror image of the wider society.

This coexistence demands processes such as discard, ignorance, indifference or exploitation. He also deals with the limit of relations in connection, the time factor, the self-reference of operations and the representation of complexity in the form of sense.

The impact of this scientific revolution, in the sense of Kuhnechoed in Logic, Cybernetics, Chemistry, Biology and the Social Sciences. These studies will be used by Maturana in his research on the nervous systemand they will have an effect both on the cognitive theory and in conceptions that support the opening of the nervous system, inserted into theories intent on representing the world: We will not admit more causes for the natural things than that which are true and, at the same time, enough to explain the phenomena of everything.
