English abstract
This article's main objective is to present the educational, research and professional situation of the discipline of social work in Sweden. It is therefore an essentially descriptive article. This description propose an analytical model that can capture the most relevant in the situation of the discipline of social work in a society that has practiced welfare state policies for more than half a century. From this description it appears that there is a permanent tension between two different types of rationalities within the social work discipline. On the one hand the classic academic rationality and on the other the rationality that impregnate the objective of the welfare state. In conclusion it is proposed that this tension can be resolved in two ways: the first is that one of the rationalities dominates the other generating negative imbalances in the discipline; the other is to try to prevent this from happening and link the rationalities and synthesize the ultimate goal of social work discipline in them which is social welfare based on human experience not only locally but also internationally.
