Furthermore, this makes them internalise, to a variable extent, disciplines and censorships which best serve the material and symbolic interests of the dominant groups or classes when they take the form of self-discipline and self-censorship. • In any given social formation, because of the pedagogic work through which the dominant pedagogic agency tends to impose recognition of the legitimacy of the dominant culture on the members of the dominated groups or classes, it tends at the same time to impose on them, by inculcation and exclusion, recognition of the illegitimacy of their own culture.

Whereas, Parkin (1974) continues, exclusion is a form of closure that stabilises the stratification order, usurpation is one that contains a potential challenge to the prevailing system of distribution. Whole collectivist rules of closure would produce a communal situation, characterised by a total negative status, of which the apartheid system is the clearest example. The opposite extreme is represented by closure practices based wholly on individual criteria, thereby giving rise to a condition of segmental statuses – a classless society.

Family formations and ethnic groupings are clear examples of segmentary differentiation that remain present in many societies today. At the same time, unequal possessions of, or access to, various forms of capital (economic, social, cultural and symbolic), as pointed out by Bourdieu, are clear indications of the importance of hierarchical differentiation. We can agree with Luhmann that communications and actions in the functionally differentiated subsystems are coordinated by various symbolically effective media (for example, money in the economic subsystem, power in the political subsystem, law and rules in the juridical subsystem, faith in the religious subsystem, and love in the subsystem of affinity) and that these codes are not translatable into each other.
