    The purpose of this paper is to analyze the social forces that fuel the advancement of science and mathematics. I hope to demonstrate that this advancement is not just due to "internal" forces created only by a need for more scientific knowledge. The energy pushing science and, mathematics forward has an important social component determined by the growing political and social relevance of scientific knowledge. I hope to show that this component is connected and parallel to the political and economic forces that are behind the move towards greater political globalization in the European Community. This has important implications for science policy makers and for scientists, both in Europe and in the United States. These implications will be discussed at the end of this paper.
