ABSTRACT: The article examines the possibilities of application of Niklas Luhmann’s sociological theory of social systems in the civilizational analysis of historical process. Research of society as a dynamic system of semantic communications allows to find out internal coherence of historical facts and all history of civilizations. The author describes the features of the dispensation of Western civilization, its system evolution and its transformation into a post-civilization.
