Abstract

El quehacer investigativo en la sociología de la ciencia tiene abiertas varias perspectivas. No es posible, sin embargo, aspirar a una síntesis de las mismas, aunque aspectos de algunas de ellas puedan presentarse a una fructífera complementariedad. Ningún esfuerzo investigativo debe soslayar, no obstante, la potencialidad teórico-metodológica de la tesis que postula el estudio de la ciencia en relación a su contexto social.
