Open peer commentary on the article “Between Realism and Constructivism? Luhmann’s Ambivalent Epistemological Standpoint” by Armin Scholl. Upshot: I argue that the distinction between realism and constructivism is incompatible with Luhmann’s systems theory. An operative theory of (social and psychic) systems has certain ontological implications that cannot be seen from a radical constructivist perspective.
