In recent decades, philosophy of science and STS studies have made substantial progress in China, but achievements and problems coexist. In order systematically to sort out this development, the author of this paper divides the topic into three parts: current research in philosophy of science, current research in STS studies, and the relationship between the two disciplines. The author predicts that philosophy of science and STS studies will, over time, address increasingly divergent topics. Even so, the development of these essentially modern scholarly fields is of significance to the future of Chinese culture and society.
