As a result of intensive scientific-technological development the extent and complexity of researched objects are being changed, ever more refined means of cognition and methodologic starting points for more adequate apprehension of reality are being formed. In the first part of the paper mono-disciplinary forms of science are characterized and problems of disciplinarity and interdisciplinarity are formulated. In the second part forms and methodologic problems of interdisciplinarity are investigated — the relation between the concepts „integration“ and „interdisciplinarity“, questions of con ceptual precision and methodologic rigidity of participating disciplines.
