Summary/Abstract: The paper follows the institulization of sociology of science along the first scientific and so called ‘second academic’ revolution. It presents Mill’s notion of sociological imagination in the perspective of a constructive postmodernistic concept possessing the ability to overcome the existing crisis in social knowledge and above all its unnatural fragmentation and compartmentalization. Social cognition being inseparable from the situation, the context of culture, life history, body experience and intelligibility forces societal structures to be organic; social sciences to propose a holistic convergent and interdisciplinary perspective that present the scientific ethical, aesthetic and religious institutions in a new unity.
