The merit of ‘inclusion’ and ‘exclusion’ is that they are well-suited to analyse the involvement or non-involvement, attachment or non-attachment of individuals or groups vis-à-vis different (sub)systems of society. At any point in every individual’s life trajectory, he/she will be included in some (sub)systems, and excluded from others. Furthermore, everybody will experience that the pattern of inclusions and exclusions will change during their life course: nearly all children, for example, will be included within a nuclear family but at the other end of the life cycle more than half of elderly North Europeans live in single-person households.
In most societies, segmentary differentiation, although still relevant, plays a less important role today than previously. 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.
