Le convergenze parallele. Il confronto di Achille Ardigò con la sociologia di Niklas Luhmann - This article presents some moments of the dialogue of Achille Ardigò with the thought of Niklas Luhmann. Ardigò shares Luhmann’s care about government crisis of post-modern societies, his opinions about irreducibility of subjective sense to systemic sense and his criticism against Parsons’s integrational approach. On the contrary, the sociology of Ardigò deeply differentiates from Luhmann’s on three topics: the reference to empirical world for explaining and to criticizing it, the transcendence of value criteria with respect to social systems, the research of a renewed transaction between social systems and persons.
