Философский статус "метафилософии науки"

Interdisciplinary researches of science form a "live" organism in which any its part performs the function in the general communication with others. The philosophy of science plays a role of "think-tank" of this organism, the generator of the sense connecting functions of its separate parts bodies in systematic unity. It is possible to call it consciousness of science. The metaphilosophy of science in relation to philosophy of science plays the role similar to what the philosophy of science plays in relation to science. The ability of philosophy of science to a self-reflection is implemented in it, as well as the investigations of the philosophical importance of the processes taking place in "trading zone" (in P. Galison's sense), are staticized. In such way, trading by the ideas between scientists, science-of-science theorists and philosophers is knowledged. Interaction of philosophy and metaphilosophy of science is carried out during the competition between various philosophical interpretations of science-of-science researches of these "trading" processes. Then, institutional, methodological, historical and culturological researches receiving philosophical interpretation become sources of the metaphilosophical ideas. Metaphorically, one may say, the metaphilosophy of science is self-consciousness of philosophy of science. Idea of metaphilosophy of science as about the direct person involved in the process happening in "trading zone" interrupts a senseless heap of "metalevels" of a philosophical reasoning on science.
