Daniel Lee - Associate Professor of Sociology, Penn State DuBois

Book Title: Theories of Distinction : Redescribing the Descriptions of Modernity

Author: Niklas Luhmann

Book Description:

Luhmann writes about how improbable it is that people will share any kind of understanding. His insights have not been easy for me to grasp, but exposure has slowly changed the way I think and express myself. It is a good thing that my wife and children tolerate such change.
