Abstract

This article describes the evolution of morality from the perspective of Niklas Luhmanns Systems theory (“Geselhchaflsstruktur und Semantik”). The author examines the connection between the specific historical-semantic form of morality and the dominant form of differentiation. Firstly, morality in segmentary differentiated societies is characterized by a principle of reciprocity. Secondly, the hierarchical morality of stratified societies is examined. Special attention is being paid to the coupling of the religious code and the moral code. Finally, the connection between functional differentiation and modern moral semantics is being looked at.
