Аннотация: The article provides the theoretical reconstruction of the content and philosophical foundations of the consensual and the conventionalist concepts of scientific cognition. It is shown that the consensual concept generalizes the rational aspects of the conventionalist concept on the one hand and rejects it on the other hand. The latter refers to a) the interpretation of the subject of scientific cognition and b) understanding the criterion of the truth of scientific knowledge.
