Recorrendo à literatura em língua inglesa dos estudos sociais da ciência e dos estudos feministas sobre a ciência, este texto esboça um panorama do debate entre as ciências naturais e esses dois campos disciplinares, ainda incipientes no Brasil. Tomando como eixos as relações ciência/natureza e autoridade científica/sociedade, no caso dos primeiros, e as relações entre sexo e natureza, gênero e cultura, discutidas pelos segundos, destacam-se paralelos e homologias entre esses dois campos de estudo.


By drawing on the anglophone literature on social studies of science and women’s studies on science, the text offers an overview of the debate among natural scientists and these two study fields, still incipient in Brazil. Relationships between science and nature, scientific authority and society, on the one hand, and those between sex and nature, gender and culture, on the other, are discussed to establish parallelism and homologies between those two study fields.
