Luhmann’s Theory of SocietyPosted: October 15, 2012
Now we all can rejoice, because the first volume of Luhmann’s two-volume magnus opus Die Gesellschaft der Gesellschaft (1,164 pages!) is finally available in its English translation. Google Books lists it as Theory of Society (Volume 1), and the paperback ready for pickup at Amazon or any other retailer of your choice.
While I would recommend the translation of Social Systems as a starter into the world according to Luhmann, his theory of society is certainly a last stepping stone to finally have his most important works translated.
