This article aims to discuss the idea of ethos of science and ethos of scholar in the sociology of science of J. Gockowski. The starting point for analysis of the problem is defining the very concept of ethos. Then, the author discusses the distinction between the ethos of science and the ethos of scholar and points out the consequences of this distinction for the sociological analysis of scientific life. In this context, the author examines the character of J. Gockowski as a scholar, who not only was the theorist of the theory of ethos of science, but also who applied the ethos requirements and rules in his everyday scientific activity.
