However, it is hard to find conclusive empirical evidence for Luhmann’s general postulate that functional differentiation is now the primary or leading type of differentiation. Central to Luhmann’s understandings of systems of the functionally differentiated society is the absence of an overall societal force that keeps the subsystems together. The subsystems are ‘structurally linked’ to each other, but there is no ‘Durkheimian common ethic’, Adam Smith’s ‘invisible hand’ or set of Parsonian ‘cultural values’ to secure the coherence of the society.
