Truth/Luhmann:> symbolically generalized communication medium that makes the adoption of new knowledge more likely.
Code: true/false.
Programs of science are theories and methods. ((S) Not true/false).
Theories are statement relationships formed on the basis of terms that the external reference of the communication form on objects, for example, and make comparisons possible. - Methods then determine the conditions under which statements can be described as true/false. - Methods represent the self-reference of science, because they have no external reference.
Truth/Luhmann is not a feature of objects but of statements. - Behind a statement there is not a piece of reality hidden but a recognition.
