In the paper the rise and development of systems approach, the basic forms of systems methods — systems approach, general systems theory, specialized systems theories are examined. Contemporary stage in the construction of general systems theory is analyzed which makes it its task to discover and to explain theoretically regularities of the construction, behaviour, functioning and development of systems.
It is above all the relation of materialist dialectics and systems theory that is analyzed in the paper, whereby the systems approach is conceived as a metodological conception which has a general scientific character and is based on the systems principle which is organically united with materialist dialectics. The philosophical principle of the systematic quality has fundamental methodological signification for further working out of general interdisciplinary methodological conceptions.
