At the third stage which formation covers an era of formation of a modern scientific and technological revolution, apparently, there are new structures of the philosophical bases of natural sciences. They are characterized osmyslniy historical variability not only ontologies, but also ideals and norms of a scientific ponaniye, vision of science in the context of social conditions of its life and its social consequences, justification of an admissibility and even need of inclusion of axiological (valuable) factors at an explanation and the description of a number of difficult system objects (examples of that is the theoretical description of ecological processes, global modeling, discussion of problems of genetic engineering, etc.).
Heuristic and predictive potentials of dialektiko-materialistic philosophy in itself do not remove a problem of practical application in science of her ideas. Such application assumes special type of researches within which the categorial structures developed by philosophy adapt for science problems. This process is connected with a specification of categories, with their transformation in ideas and the principles of a scientific picture of the world and in the methodological principles expressing ideals and norms of this or that science. The specified type of researches makes an essence of the philosophical and methodological analysis of science. As a result at the solution of cardinal scientific problems the content of philosophical categories very often finds new shades which then come to light a philosophical reflection and form the basis for new enrichment of the categorial device of philosophy. The perversion of these principles is fraught with big costs both for science, and for philosophy.
The second aspect of philosophical creativity connected with generation of the contents which is potentially beyond philosophical ideas and categorial structures, necessary for science of a certain historical era, is caused by vnutreteoretichesky problems of the philosophy. Revealing the main world outlook meanings peculiar to culture of the corresponding era, philosophy then operates with them as with special ideal objects, studies their internal relations, connects them in complete system where any change of one element directly or indirectly influences others. New categorial meanings, and even such for which it is difficult to find direct analogs in practice of the corresponding era can result from such intra theoretical operations. Developing these meanings, the philosophy prepares peculiar categorial matrixes of future world outlook structures, next ways of understanding, judgment and experience by the person of the world.
The source of predictive functions of philosophy roots in the main features of the filosofsy knowledge aimed at a constant reflection over the world outlook bases of culture. Here it is possible to allocate two main aspects significantly characterizing philosophical knowledge. The first of them is connected with generalization by philosophy of extremely wide material of historical development of culture which includes not only science, but also all phenomena of creativity. The philosophy often faces fragments and aspects of reality which surpass the objects mastered by science in the level of system complexity. For example, chelovekomerny objects which functioning assumes an inclusiveness in them a human factor, became a subject of natural-science research only during an era of a modern scientific and technological revolution, with development of system design, use of the COMPUTER, the analysis of global ecological processes, etc. The philosophical analysis traditionally faces the systems including as the "human factor" component, for example at judgment of various phenomena of spiritual culture. Therefore the categorial device providing development of such systems torabatyvatsya in philosophy in general long before its application in natural sciences.
Thus, the philosophy in general possesses opredlenny redundancy of the contents in relation to inquiries of science of each historical era. At the decision are developed by philosophy of mirovozzrencheky problems not only those most general ideas and the principles which are the prerequisite of development of objects at this stage of development of science, but also categorial schemes which importance for science is found only at future stages of evolution of knowledge are formed. In this sense it is possible to speak about a certain predicting functions of philosophy in relation to natural sciences.
Formation of dialektiko-materialistic philosophy marked transition to a new way of philosophical thinking which realizes own social prerequisites and the conditionality historical development of the public relations and activity of people.
