Биологическое и социальное в человеке – современный методологический кризис и вечная проблема мировой психологии

Сорокин П. С., Мироненко И. А.

It is argued that contemporary methodological problems in psychology (often regarded as “crisis”) are part of a general crisis of socio-humanitarian sciences, caused by changes of social reality of the last decades. In sociology the idea is largely discussed. Meanwhile in psychology there is still a strong tendency to attribute contemporary methodological problems to the internal contradictions and disunities shaped and constantly reproduced within the discipline since the beginning of XXth century. We challenge this view by considering the radical transformation of the social world as a cause of current methodological difficulties in psychology.
