Abstract

This article is the outcome of the systematic use of the application of the ethnographic method, supported in the participative observation and the interview to determine the current status of the relation between the official policies of the Cuban State and science in Cuba, demonstrating a substantial divorce between both institutions, which attempts against creativity, generates dissatisfactions in scientists, creates incongruity between the academic qualifications or scientific grades granted with the scientific quality results, allowing a proliferation of the opinion science which does not generate knowledge. On the other hand, some actions are proposed to contribute to the necessary approach between science and politics.
