As we have been living in a quickly developing knowledge-society at least since WW2, scientific knowledge, either from natural and social sciences, is today the basis of almost every public policies. However, citizens’ movements often vigorously contest science-based decisions, taking advantage from, and feeding as well, debates more or less grounded within scientific community. If knowledge is thought to be a (peculiar) public good, presently we are confronting dramatic challenges about current relationship between science and democracy and knowledge citizenship. Will be confronted documents such as Ventotene Manifesto (1941-1944), Vannevar Bush’s Science the endless frontier (1945), Charles P. Snow The two cultures (1959/1963), Trilateral’s The Crisis of democracy (1975) and from Horizon 2020, too. The urgent task for social science between socio-economic dire straits and sociological imagination deficiencies will be argued.
