SIERRA, Rosa. La sociedad global y el alcance de las estructuras normativas. Eidos [online]. 2012, n.17, pp.224-255. ISSN 1692-8857.

The paper takes the idea that political theory should formulate their normative principles in a close connection to social facts as a starting point to analyze J. Habermas' proposal of a political constitution for the global society. The equilibrium between normative and factual aspects in his proposal appears evident through the restrictions that, in his model, the nature of social reality imposes to the formulation of political principles at the global level. This is particularly evident through the figure of a multilevel system. The paper frames the analysis in a critical discussion of N. Luhmann's concept of a global society and of the way some other approaches involve particular visions of what count as a global problem.

Keywords : Global society; political theory; normativity; social facts; multilevel system.
