Summary/Abstract: The original orientation of Systems Engineering on hard technological systems is still prevailing. But an advanced respect to a design and redesign of sociocultural systems is necessary. The notion of the social system is well known since the 20th century from excellent works of Parsons, Luhmann, Habermas, Bourdieu, Foucault, etc. The contribution selects some fundamental ideas on social systems from philosophy and sociology of modernity for the purposes of an up-to-date Systems Engineering and it shows their incorporation in significant system studies on design of sociocultural systems in the Czech Republic. This is thesis of the 45th Conference on Systems Engineering (SYSIN 2014).
