Jurgen Habermas Systems Theory Blog Post 7

During the Spring of my Sophomore year I took a class with Dr. Jayman in which we learned about the legitimation crisis as described by economist and theorist Jürgen Habermas. He employed an illustration now known as the systems theory to explain the entering of a legitimation crisis. He introduces three main systems, the economic system, the political-administrative system and the socio-cultural system. Each of these systems are intermingled with one another, if one fails the other two are bound to be affected. In regards to my research I place education in the Socio-Cultural System where once affected negatively by segregation it affect how society performs and the level of loyalty from those it directly affects. In turn this hurts both the political Administrative System as well as the Economic System.
