The author deals with the question of the three historical components of Marxism and points out the problem of integrating into the system of Marxism-Leninism as a universal basis of cognition also other social sciences (historiography,, ethics, aesthetics and others). In this connection he analyzes in detail the question of historical materialism as the theoretical-methodological basis of all social sciences. The possibility of integrating philosophically „the integration of the world” dwells in the system of Marxism-Leninism as an „open“ search for answers to the problems set forth by the age (and the projected, prognostic ones). „The truth” of this integration contains the maximum of the exact and verified (and verifiable) scientific pieces of knowledge. In conclusion the author deals with the question of man’s „creative activities” in philosophy, in social sciences and in artistic (literary) creation. „The complex“ approach to the question of integration of the world and of man’s creative activities means a multiplication — in the social context — of the political and ideological function of marxist-leninist philosophy. It is only in these connections and in relation to all scientific branches to the determining role of historical materialism that the subject of marxist philosophy is manifested in the system (theory) of Marxism-Leninism.
