Systemic Concept of Science as a Tool for Resolving Certain Science Problems

Paulina Broszkiewicz
Abstract—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 />
Index Terms—Science, system, integrity, utility, truth.
