The article addresses the current state of scientific methodology in relation to psychology. It is argued that methodology has developed to such an extent that a need has arisen for a special methodology for choosing and applying methodology in particular sciences. Special attention is drawn to the role of art as a kind of methodology: art nourishes intuition, whereas methodology nourishes discourse. The article also presents propedeutics of methodological culture and critically assesses — or rather problematises — a set of methodological principles typical of modern psychology. Finally, the problem of the compatibility/incompatibility of polarities that have existed in psychology for centuries and provoked a lot of arguments is discussed as well.

Keywords: methodology, theory, experiment, art, determinism, uncertainty, systemness, khaoidnost, development, reflection, origination, comprehension, intuition

Column: Discussions and Discourses
