From the Publisher'These lectures, published here in English for the first time,show Luhmann at the height of his powers. They offer a uniqueinsight into the engine room of arguably the world's most famoussystems theorist. It is indeed a brilliant mind that is at workhere; very few other social scientists would be able to perform atsuch a level. Particularly for students and readers who are notfamiliar with Luhmann's style of thought, this is an idealintroduction to systems theory by the man himself.'
Andreas Hess, University College Dublin
