Postnonclassical perspective of modern psychology: conjugation of science and religion 1317
The article represents attempt to understand the methodological problems of psychology in the context of contemporary trends in scientific knowledge. Solving these problems is of fundamental importance for the whole of psychological practice. Postnonclassical science brought to the fore the question of the value basis of science, the need for its assessment and control. This question is of the utmost urgency and requires not only specific decisions on the part of regulatory methodology, but also the discussion in the descriptive, analytical form. Both aspects of the matter are discussed in the first part of the article. According to author, the control value basis of scientific activity should be in the form of their explication. In the psychology such explication of value bases is seen as the anthropological model, that serves as foundation of all subsequent work (determination of the principles of methodological tools choice, basic concepts, etc.). Author's way of developing such model is presented in the second part of the article. Anthropological model reveals the Christian values: the pairing of science and religion seems to the author a key objective of the present stage of development of psychology.
