The author discusses the problem of development of sociology of social sciences. He focuses his attention on such problems as power, stratification and intellectual property in social sciences. The problems of gender and ethnicity are of great significance for sociology of social sciences. A strong social science (in the country or region) is a science whose representatives occupy leading positions in the process of producing scientific knowledge of social processes as a whole. A weak social science is a science whose representatives are outsiders not participating in the production of scientific knowledge in social sciences. It is of great importance for Russia to make its weak social science strong.
