The author deals with the dialectics of the totality of factors which determine variedly the development of scientific theories and disciplines. It is due to their influence that so-called partial achievements of science, materialized in the periods between great discoveries, may be interpreted rationally.
The author analyzes interactions between scientific disciplines in contemporary science and he shows that not only special scientific disciplines influence the thinking in philosophy but also the opposite holds good. He shows narrow contacts between component sciences in bordering scientific disciplines, their possible classification, the processes of differentiation of science even within the framework of the bordering sciences themselves. He warns of the reduction of one scientific discipline to another one, inclusively philosophy.
