Abstract

Science as a way of rational cognition solves the problem of creating an objective picture of the world. The methodological principles of the study allow scientists to formulate the basic laws of the development of the universe. But there are such objects of science for the study of which a special methodology is required. One of such complex objects of knowledge is human consciousness. The difficulty that scientists and philosophers encounter when studying it is that consciousness is the subject of its own knowledge. Human’s consciousness is not only the result of the evolution of nature, but also the main tool for knowing its laws. A human in the scientific picture of the world appears as the highest stage of the evolution, and the boundary between animals and man is the consciousness. But, it is possible that this boundary is conditional, and the consciousness and the entire spiritual life of a person have completely material, that is natural foundations. Our paper is devoted to the discussion of this topic.
