La presencia de Talcott Parsons en el trabajo teórico de Niklas Luhmann

Some people considers The Niklas Luhmann’s Theory of Social System like a recent version of the Talcott Parsons’ Theory. In this paper, We are going to demonstrate that is not true. The Luhmann’s Theory is more dynamical in comparison with the structural character of the Parsons’ approach because included some conceptual aspects of the recent theory of complexity (von Foerster, Spencer Brown). This analysis was founded in the study of the uses of the two terms: «system» and «social system».
