By reviewing a selection of articles in the field of Science Studies, this articleexplores the relations between science/technology and socio-culture, and sees science/technology as a specific way of cultural practice. Rejecting the view that treats science/technology as an independent existence, the present study firstly argues that different forms of science/technology are embedded in their specific social institutions, political positions and cultural values.
