    Rethinking Systems Theory: A Programmatic Introduction.Andreas Pickel - 2007 - Philosophy of the Social Sciences 37 (4):391-407.
    Does systems theory need rethinking? Most social scientists would probably say no. It had its run, was debated critically, and found wanting. If at all, it should be treated historically. Why then might systems theory need rethinking, as the title of this symposium claims? The reason is that, unlike in the natural and biosocial sciences, any conception of system in the social sciences has remained suspect in the wake of problematic Parsonian and cybernetic systems theories. The premise of this special (...)

    Between Social Science and Social Technology: Toward a Philosophical Foundation for Post-Communist Transformation Studies.Andreas Pickel - 2001 - Philosophy of the Social Sciences 31 (4):459-487.
    This analysis examines fundamental questions at the intersection of social science and social technology as well as problems of disciplinary divisions and the challenge of cross-disciplinary cooperation. Its theoretical-empirical context is provided by post-communist transformations, a set of profound societal changes in which institutional design plays a central role. The article critically reappraises the contribution of Karl Popper's philosophy to this problem context, examines neoliberalism as social science and social technology, and examines the role of experts and disciplinary divisions in (...)

    Nations, National Cultures, and Natural Languages: A Contribution to the Sociology of Nations.Andreas Pickel - 2013 - Journal for the Theory of Social Behaviour 43 (4):425-445.
    This paper seeks to contribute to the sociology of nations, a literature that is only starting to carve out its place in the social sciences. The paper offers a reconceptualization of “nations” as “national cultures”, employing an evolutionary perspective and a systemic framework in which “nations” are understood as cultural systems of a special kind. National cultures are intimately tied to natural languages, and the acquisition of a national culture occurs as part and parcel of the acquisition of a natural (...)
