We analyse the influence that the dominant axiological motivation of individualism had on the formation ofepistemological concepts in modern philosophy. We show how specific content of epistemological structures in the philosophy ofF Bacon, R Descartes and G. W Leibniz depends on how strongly they express individualistic tendencies. The study asserts the importance of axiological background in the modern concept of scientific knowledge, which postulates that the subject should not be eliminated Horn the process of acquiring knowledge and its results.
