The aim of the paper is to provoke a discussion about linguistic style in science, required features of discourse and freedom of narration. Characteristic features of the linguistic style in science have been presented and two styles distinguished: severe and vivid one. In the milieu of technical universities, some variance in assessment of linguistic correctness of dissertations may be seen. The source of that variance is controversial requirement for use of severe style. As a supporter of the vivid style, the author presents arguments in favour of it. Characteristic for the language in science is frequent occurrence of impersonal forms, passive voice, lack of emotional attitude and avoidance of subjective judgements. These features, though dominant, cannot be absolutely required in the whole of scientific texts, as he tries to prove.
