Science remains a subject of fear and stupefaction. It assaults the learned and the "honest man" with crucial challenges and new questions for our civilization. Sine the nineties, two areas of research have come in opposition to one another over all the questions relating to science (legitimisation, universality, profit…). The "moderate position" defends the hard core sciences and their independence with regard to society, while the "strong position" and the "hard position" place a strong value on the social dimension of all scientific activities (fraud, secrets, competition, rivalry, rhetoric, etc.) and reduce scientific research to a practice and culture of western society. The science of today breaks up living culture and confuses it with technology. This volume offers an inventory of all these questions, showing the complexity and the difficulty of making science a social study among others, but also the specificity of current science, its role as a social institution, its economic weight, and its strategic functions in the alliances between nations.
