The purposes of the paper are two: to formulate some interpretative hyphoteses on the participation of social scientists (particularly sociologists, political scientists, psychologists) as experts to the construction of public enemy in political-military conflicts in modern society. The second one is to move some critical arguments on the attitude of expertise based on social sciences facing the tragedy of the war. The paper ends drawing attention of the need to rethink, on the basis of emancipatory rationality, the relation between social sciences, power and conflicts.
