Modern science as a socio-managerial and socio-cultural factor

The article considers a rationalized assumption of science as a universal, asocial monolith, as an example of a technical understanding that is not subjected to personal or group interests. It is underlined that the science itself and its perception by the modern society need to be researched by means of sociology of culture, sociology of management, and sociology of knowledge.

Keywords: sociology of knowledge, science, technical discourse, cognition, scientific knowledge, subject of science.
