|Luhmann's issue||Similar to Dooyeweerd||> Different from Dooyeweerd|
|Differentiation analysis: what is observable?||To observe something reflectively involves analytic functioning, in that we distinguish a thing from its environment, and another, and then each from the other. Either way, we make the distinction on the basis of some aspect thereof.||-|
|Differentiation analysis: what is the similarity?||This seems to be a direct question about "In which aspect are we making the differentiation?" For example, to differentiate a sports club from a business, we must first recognise they are both social institutions.||-|
|Form analysis: the unity of the difference. Aim is to identify the 'guiding' distinction.||This sounds very like Dooyeweerd's notion of qualifying aspect: all things function in all aspects, but there is one aspect that is most important in defining its meaning.||Dooyeweerd differentiated several important roles of aspects of a thing: qualifying, leading, founding, etc. Could Luhmann benefit from this?|
