authority does have the effect of framing interdependence in such a way as to make self-government between people necessary. Within states over time, interdependencies grow, making individual personal and political autonomy more interdependent on others than before. Even in the contemporary context of globalization, the authority of bounded states has the effect of creating multiply reiterated relations of interdependence. The

adds another exclusion mechanism that systematically prevents them from being adequately included. And this is precisely where AAI provides a compelling moral critique and points towards feasible political reform. Subjection or interdependence? David Miller's comments prompted me to clarify that affected interests cannot be included equally and that including all affected interests comes at the price of thinning out the

’s relations to self-sacrifice and divinity, and indeed to subjectivity more broadly configured. As is true of her continental colleagues, Purvis’s work is positioned as a critique of the Enlightenment implications of autonomy and independence that underpin oppositional structures like activity/passivity, autonomy/dependence. And, like Cixous, Purvis recognises that oppositional structures have relied on an illusory conceptual discreteness that denies their interdependence upon each other, and that therefore denies an understanding of relationship that is not constituted

The hybridisation of contracting

fore. Experts are held to professional standards of scientific objectivity and neutrality. Bilateral contracting, by contrast, imposes legitimate obligations of cooperation, trust, interdependence and loyalty towards the economic interests of the mandator on the expert. The question underlying the aforementioned controversy is whether liability to a third party, in this case that of the expert to the

inevitably to the successful resolution of both individual and societal problems and, onward and upward, to ever higher levels of experience and civilization. Yet, while Dewey runs the risk, like Hegel, of being identified with a progressive evolutionary theory of history and development, unlike Hegel, he is quite explicit about positing no end point, or resting place, or final resolution. In terms of learning theory, Dewey used the concept of ‘continuity’ in order to theorize the link between existing experience and the future based on the ‘interdependence of all organic

The mutual paranoia of Jacques Derrida and Niklas Luhmann
Gunther Teubner

each other in an infinite and unresolvable circularity, and it reappears as the precarious but manageable social interdependence of two communicative constructs, ego and alter. When they are reconstructed in communication, the paradoxical effects of their encounter are as it were rendered harmless. But there is a price to pay. While the paradoxes of the encounter with the other disappear, the

power of the State to directly command individuals). These two considerations will be discussed in more depth in due course, but for the time being it suffices to raise their existence and then to point out that all of this arises not as a mere epiphenomenon of global interdependence and integration, but contingently on the fact that human beings have recognised and begun to think about global governance as a thing in its own right. In other words, just as in the early modern period the State became an object of “reflected practice” in the work of those such as

we have just seen in the case of Lane's 2012 critique of Adorno, however, the interdependence of these disparate texts continues to facilitate misunderstandings many years after that translation was published. Jay's framing nonetheless helps us place Lane's accusation that Adorno merely adds an epistemological dimension to the traditional statesman-demagogue distinction in a different, again psychoanalytic, light. For Adorno and Horkheimer's account of the paranoia/projection dynamic distinguishes a legitimate epistemological role for projection which, they

assumed to rely on an underlying appeal to either sameness or autonomy. Cixous’ acknowledgement of the interdependence of a subjectivity that arises in and through difference, as I hope to show, renders incomprehensible the Enlightenment characterisation of discrete, authentic selves who pre-exist their encounters with others and achieve a certain equality (sameness) in having the same access to rights or resources. Thus, in the simplest terms, equality in the Cixousian lexicon assumes and embraces difference. 9780719069604_4_000.qxd 09/01/2009 09:54 AM Page 15

and scientific rationality. Within systems’ environment (Umwelt), rationality gives its defining lines as the experience of the potential where the latter interrupts associations and creates discontinuities as well as interdependences. His analysis of systems’ environment (Umwelt) leans towards an anti-​Kantian rather than anti-​traditional conception of the rational. With Luhmann, the divergence between Lebenswelt and Umwelt became a mainstay within the epistemological terms of the twentieth century. Systems’ rationality is a shining example of epistemology in
