—Due to scientific progress the questions about the
goal, the real object and the limits of science are being asked
again. New values related with science appear too and enter
into relations with the old values of science such as truth, good
and beauty, causing confusion about what is important about
science at all. The paper presents a view of science which tends
to eliminate these problems and tensions. The view suggests
treating science as a system – a system of knowledge and
human actions, and investigating it using general system
theory notions and categories. It is supposed to help us to
determine the right relations between different values of
science and to understand that science is not an isolated thing,
but a totality which is not just a sum of its parts. The concept
can be seen as a tool for dealing with certain problems within
science and managing science.br />
—Science, system, integrity, utility, truth.
