Contingency, reciprocity, the other, and the other in the other Luhmann–Lacan, an encounter
Paradoxes of normativity are at the heart of any theory of normative orders. The deepest theoretical insights into meaning and structure of such an essential paradoxity lead to the recognition of the co-originarity of law (and indeed this to a certain extent applies to all other subsystems), on the one hand, and social communication, on the other. That means: any scheme of theoretical reconstruction of both concepts generates them in structural simultaneity.
