Abstract
This article is devoted to the philosophy of economics as to the interdisciplinary area existing on a joint of philosophy and economy. Philosophy of economics - «philosophical problems of economy» is the scientific interdisciplinary direction investigating the most fundamental, basic, and most metaphysical questions of development of an economy and economic science. Structurally, the philosophy of economics develops the following sections: methodological problems of philosophy of economy, market philosophy and philosophical problems of economic consciousness, economic axiology, economic ethics and anthropology. The problem of philosophy of economics in a context of the present challenges is to reflect successfully three threats: 1. Dogmatism and traditionalism; 2. Relativism; 3. Anti-scientism and irrationalism). In addition, this article attempts to prove the right to existence as a scientific discipline, though this problem is very difficult (especially in conditions of methodological aggression from outside), from a social pseudo-science, containing groundless faultfinding and religionism.
