Rasch W. (1998) Luhmanns Widerlegung des Idealismus? Constructivism as a two-front war. [Luhmann’s refutation of idealism? Constructivism as a two-front war] Soziale Systeme 4(1): 151–159. Fulltext at
This paper uses the occasion of a short passage on causality in Luhmann’s “Die Gesellschaft der Gesellschaft” to define constructivism not as a firm philosophical position, but as a pragmatic strategy that is guided by “political” interests in its oscillations between realism and idealism. Its commitments are not to reality, but to the description of a functionally differentiated social order.
