Open peer commentary on the article “Communication Emerging? On Simulating Structural Coupling in Multiple Contingency” by Manfred Füllsack. Upshot: In Füllsack’s paper, the communication network is considered as emergent. This raises the question of whether society is emerging or sui generis. This contribution discusses the latter (perhaps counter-intuitive) perspective and some analytical consequences.
