This Chapter provides a short introduction to some of the basic concepts of the theory of autopoiesis and the ways in which it has been used in planning. Luhmann’s work is extensive and spans a number of functional systems engaging with a vast range of concepts. It is highly original and aims to provide a theory of modern society that takes into account its complexity.
