Thomas Müller has made the point that my use of the term ‘social form’ does not accord with the classical use by Simmel in his Soziologie. This is not the time to enter into more detailed discussions of this rather speciﬁc subject matter. However, I would maintain that the difference between my usage here and Simmel’s is primarily scalar, meaning, for example, that in the end I see society as constituting a social form like friendship, conﬂict or marriage, yet on a vastly different scale. ‘Society formation [Vergesellschaftung] is thus the form which realises itself in the innumerable different ways in which individuals, on the basis of their interests – sensual or ideal, momentary or permanent, conscious or unconscious, causally pushing or teleologically pulling – grow together into a unity’ (Simmel 1908: 6).
Habermas developed this theme particularly in his Theory of Communicative Action (Habermas 1988). As a result of his reading of Parsons and further development of Parsons’ ideas, he accords a very important (and growing) role to functional differentiation in modern society. However – and here he is still following Parsons – he also sees functional differentiation as having a (partly manifest, partly latent) centrifugal effect on the ‘lifeworld’, from which the social systems are increasingly decoupled.
In the end, his argument boils down to two empirical claims. 17 The second empirical claim is that ‘only the functional realms of empirical reproduction can be differentiated from the lifeworld through steering media. The symbolic structures of the lifeworld can only reproduce themselves through the basic medium of action oriented towards reaching understanding; the action systems related to cultural reproduction, social integration and socialisation remain attached to the structures of the lifeworld and of 15 16 17 The prominent adoption of Habermas particularly by German IR since the mid1990s has focused on the issue of communicative versus instrumental rationality in action settings that underlie the emergence of institutions and norms, and completely ignored that, at least up until the Theory of Communicative Action, Habermas also wrote on the theory of society.
