The author challenges common believe in European-only roots of science. He reminds about other, non-European nations (Chinese, Arabs and others) input into the development of science in ancient as well as modern times. Philosophical argumentation for the universality of science is no less important than historical one. He describes both historical and philosophical development that resulted in present position of science in the Western world. He also discusses the question of universal truth. The article addresses the question of globalisation in the context of science. In the contemporary world many marginalised areas need not only financial help, but also free access to know-how and participation in global academic exchange. The author also stresses the potential role of new technologies in making easier an access to education and research exchange, being a chance for developing countries.
