Methodology, Thinking, Communication

2013. Vol. 10. No. 1. P. 3–21 [issue contents]

In this paper tThe author responds to criticism of modern methodology, in particular, accusations and claims to of normativism and expansion, technologism and the inability to study phenomena in their uniqueness. The author acknowledges that the greatest weakness of the methodology is its ambiguity and the opacity of its bases. Methodological programs are designed to explain how a methodologist understands, studies and constitutes thinking. However, according to the author, it is still not enough for the philosophical community that does not listen to the methodologists.

The author tries to show that an alternative methodology does not exist, and that the need for it one is increasing. The author considers a number of features of modern methodology: restructuring of unsatisfactory forms and ways of thinking and creation of new ways,; monitoring of methodological thinking,; reliance on thinking techniques and understanding of the nature of thinking,; a close relationship with the philosophy,; as well as and separation of general and specific methodology. According to the author, the methodology plays an important role in the construction of "thinking machines" (cases of prevailing thinking functioning) and creation of the conditions for "event thinking" (cases of formation of new thinking).

The author believes that the disintegration of thought into separate areas and the lack of criteria for the correctness of philosophical thought have now reached a critical level. In connection with the crisis of modern communication, the criteria to assess correctness of methodological work and thinking are discussed. According to the author, nowadays, methodology nowadays exists both in the form of various fully socialized seminars and directions of methodological work and in the works of some single methodologists, but always in opposition to other forms of thinking.
