  "description": "<p>In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, important transformations are taking place while a dense veil of uncertainty clouds the way out of the present predicaments. This short, impromptu comment, based on the theories of German sociologist Niklas Luhmann, plays the game of &ldquo;What would Luhmann have said&rdquo;, without the ambition to predict actual outcomes, but just as an exercise of interrogating his theory. Of course, Luhmann&rsquo;s own brilliance would have considerably helped.</p>",
