Theory, Culture and Society 18 (1):15-27 (2001)

The article is an edited version of a set of notes written by Luhmann on poetry and social theory. It is a series of reflections on different paradoxical forms of communication, mainly exploring notions of incommunicability, silence and latency. The article also deals with poetry, religion and the relationship between consciousness and communication. Luhmann's notes have appeared in their original form in German in the journal Soziale Systeme.
