Rischi pandemici

Luigi Pannarale168-187

Abstract: Pandemic Risks

The author intends to use Niklas Luhmann’s social systems theory, and namely his sociology of risk, to assess the effects of the pandemic on crucial social communication systems, such as politics, mass media, economics, science, law, and love. Moving from the primary distinction between dangers and risks, the paper describes the transformation of pandemic dangers into risky decisions within each social communication system.
