This introductory chapter first sets out the purpose of the book—to trace out the ultimate implications of the premise that any complex constitutional order, including our own, is best understood as a system of systems. It then discusses systems theory, which is considered a natural and fitting tool for legal theory in general and constitutional theory in particular. An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.

Keywords: systems theory; legal theory; constitutional order; constitutional theory
