Risk : a sociological theory by Niklas Luhmann( Book )

6 editions published between 1993 and 2017 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A great deal of attention has been devoted to risk research. Sociologists in general have limited themselves to varying recognitions of a society at risk and have traced out the paths to disaster. The detailed research has yet to be undertaken. In Risk, now available in paperback, Niklas Luhmann develops a theoretical program for such research. His premise is that the concept of risk projects essential aspects of our description of the future onto the present. Risk is conceived as the possibility of triggering unexpected, unlikely, and detrimental consequences by means of a decision attributable to a decision maker."--Provided by publisher
Theory of society by Niklas Luhmann( Book )

8 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This first volume of Niklas Luhmann's two-part final work was initially published in German in 1997. The culmination of his thirty-year theoretical project to reconceptualize sociology, it offers a comprehensive description of modern society on a scale not attempted since Talcott Parsons. Beginning with an account of the fluidity of meaning and the accordingly high improbability of successful communication, Luhmann analyzes a range of communicative media, including language, writing, the printing press, and electronic media as well as "success media," such as money, power, truth, and love, all of which structure this fluidity and make communication possible. An investigation into the ways in which social systems produce and reproduce themselves, the book asks what gives rise to functionally differentiated social systems, how they evolve, and how social movements, organizations, and patterns of interaction emerge. The advent of the computer and its networks, which trigger potentially far-reaching processes of restructuring, receive particular attention. A concluding chapter on the semantics of modern society's self-description bids farewell to the outdated theoretical approaches of "old Europe," that is, to ontological, holistic, ethical, and critical interpretations of society, and argues that concepts such as "the nation," "the subject," and "postmodernity" are vastly overrated. In their stead, "society"--Long considered a suspicious term by sociologists, one open to all kinds of reification - is defined in purely operational terms. It is the always uncertain answer to the question of what comes next in all areas of communication

Ringing the changes in Europe : regulatory competition and the transformation of the state : Britain, France, Germany by Adrienne Windhoff-Héritier( Book )

6 editions published between 1996 and 2011 in English and German and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The nature of state activities is undergoing rapid transformation in Europe. The European Union exerts influence on state practices in member countries, which in their turn shape European policy. In short, the Joint supranational policy-making framework and the development towards an integrated market have provoked a mutual, ongoing process of transformation between member states and European institutions. The future of institutional and policy innovation is gradually taking shape. How and why is this change taking place in the European Union? What are the underlying mechanisms and motive forces and how do they affect European policy? How does European legislation influence policy content, institutions, and relations between the state and society in member countries? These questions are examined with reference to a specific regulatory area, clean-air policy, in the interaction between strategies in Britain, France and Germany
