Pilotta, Joseph John
MetadataShow full item record
The book is an interdisciplinary investigation of the themes of the most influential sociologist in Europe today, Niklas Luhmann (1927-1998). The dominant themes are, as the title suggests, society, environment and the world, which were developed in his works, 70 books, and over 400 articles. The topics addressed are law, economy, politics, art, ecology and mass media. It is the intention of the authors to introduce Luhmann to new audiences without utilizing the highly abstract language of Luhmann writings, which were influenced by Talcott Parsons, Max Weber, Fritz von Forester and Edmund Husserl.
