The re-creation of society involves the bottom-up-emergence of social information and the top-down-emergence of individual information. Social self-organisation in a broad sense refers to the re-creation of society, in a narrower sense it takes aspects of participation in the processes of constituting social information into account.
The whole social system encompasses three cycles of self-organisation which result in the emergence of social information on an economic, a political as well as a cultural level. On the one hand, economical information influences the emergence of political and cultural information and political information influences the emergence of cultural information in processes of bottom-up-emergence. On the other hand, cultural information influences the emergence of political and economical information and political information influences the emergence of economical information in processes of top-down-emergence. Nonetheless, economics and economical information form the base of each type of society. They dominate, but never determine the various social processes and the formation and differentiation of social information.
