In the paper the signification of the concept „system“ in the European rational way of thinking is analyzed where it connotes the concept „objectivity“ and is also linked with the notion „completeness“. The author demonstrates in Hegel’s History of Philosophy that the systematic character of knowledge is the condition of objectivity of knowledge and so from the very beginning the concept „system“ is the condition of cognition in general.
In the end of the paper the author analyzes the problem of a philosophic system — its completeness, Its open character, its self-sufficiency but also its determination by social practice.
