This paper is a review of articles published in the journal “Science, technology and human values” for 2010-2014.

The author discusses four major aspects of the relationship between science and the context in STS: the role of non-scientific values in science, the influence of funding on the process and the results of scientific research, new trends in contemporary science and criticism of STS.
