Social systems theory, Postmodernity and the region


The preoccupation with postmodern deconstruction has dimmed the light on the movement of social systems theory toward reconstruction. Yet this theory exhibits a certain affinity with the recently emerging forms of socio-spatial theory, and offers applicability in diverse fields of social scientific inquiry. By means of a deconstructive and reconstructive scrutiny of its key dimensions, social systems theory is brought into a challenging debate on Postmodernity. Finally, the relevance of social systems theory for the region as an appropriate theoretical object is assessed. -Author
