Authority to Counteract Complexity

The law is perhaps the first victim of the social and cultural processes that characterize contemporary societies. In this issue, Marco Dugato ironically illustrates the legislative simplification parable that makes evident the crisis in the theorization of complexity, instead of a redemptive end, summoned by philosophers, sociologists, biologists, and engineers. Indeed, reactions to such a crisis involve ordinary rights and, even more, the governance of processes, the core of which is reduced to the institutional engineering of complex social processes, and a simplified idea of innovation, whether intended as technological or competence dissemination.
