In this presentation of a general theory of systems, Germanys most prominent and controversial social thinker sets out a contribution to sociology that reworks our understanding of meaning and communication. Luhmann responds to the theory crisis in sociology with a genealogy of his own, which includes a cybernetician (Heinz von Foerster), two evolutionary biologists (Humberto R.

Maturana and Francisco Varela), and an obscure mathematician (George Spencer Brown), not to speak of the Devil Himself. This list of names defines a set of problems that explodes the boundaries of sociology by linking social theory to recent theoretical developments in scientific disciplines as diverse as modern physics, information theory, general systems theory, neurophysiology, phenomenology, and cognitive science.

In these fields, the erosion of classical paradigms suggests, not the end of science, but a fundamental revision of its theoretical premises.
