What is science today?
In this essay an attempt is made to answer the question as to what contemporary science is, by looking at science's main task, namely the sistematic methodical search for the truth. In this respect a cognitive model, which issued from radical change in recent science, is explicated; Attention is paid to a plural truth constitution of different sciences as well as to the problem of the existence and validity of different scientific paradigms in one and the same science. The importance as such, as well as the implications of radical reflection on science, is indicated.
