German sociologist. Sociologist of law, Parsons at Harvard University, Professor of Bielefeld University from 1968 to 1992. We developed phenomenology and social systems theory, while developing self-reference and autoposition as two axes. It is hypothesized that the formation of the system is the result of selective operation of the self-adaptive system to reduce the complexity of the surrounding world, and therefore functional structure theory, which understands the surrounding world as a system, can be effective. The pursuit of a general theory that generally confirms it is noteworthy as an effort to target general sociological theory after Parsons' passage. The book "Sociology of Law" (1972) etc.
I am from West Germany.
It aims to reconstruct sociology as a systems theory of society. As a method, we propose a structural theory that sees the existence (as function) of social order as a result of detailed functionality, systems formation, the selective operation of self-adaptive systems that reduce (or absorb) the complexity of the environment world. While specializing in administrative sociology, grand theories developed with universal validity conditions will attract global attention.
