Thanks for the feedback so far in repsonse to my request about
Bourdieu/Luhman/Derrida. I will try to explain my reasons for these
(related) queries when I have more time.

Plenty of articles have been translated. There was an issue of New
German Critique specifically on Luhmann and the latest German issue of

published an article about 'deconstruction as second-order observing'.
