In this paper, we aim to discuss the scientific culture from the perspective of activity theory and to understand it as a synthesis of activity systems resulting from interactions between other activity systems. To build up a proposal for the scientific culture activity system, we suggest three systems: science production; scientific communication and scientific education. Our results highlight that the scientific culture can be understood as a complex of relations between activities motivated by several factors, which extend from the production of new reality interpretations to cultural transmission through the media or school.
