A prominent German sociologist, Niklas Luhmann (born 1927) developed a general sociological systems theory, which he applied to a wide range of problems. After returning to Germany, Luhmann decided to turn to social science and an academic career. He held research and teaching positions at.
In Law as a Social System, Luhmann proposes to provide a (relatively) complete description of the law based on systems theory and consequently conceived as a subsystem of the larger social system. The complexity of Luhmann's case in many ways demands a map as large as the territory to be covered, but as Luhmann himself admits, such is impractical.
In social theory, the concept of self-referentiality has been introduced as a sociological application of self-organization theory by Niklas Luhmann (1984). For Luhmann the elements of a social system are self-producing communications, i.e. a communication produces further communications and hence a social system can reproduce itself as long as there is dynamic communication.
