Niklas Luhmann and Organization Studiesaf David Seidl, Kai Helge Becker
Niklas Luhmann (1927-1998) was one of the most innovative social scientists of our time. He suggested a completely new way of thinking about the social, which has been discussed in many different fields of research, from philosophy to business administration. Based on his general social theory, he develops a unique organization theory that challenges existing perceptions of organizations.
