The article analyzes two paradigms in understanding the nature of scientific truth: transcendentally-monistic and socio-pluralistic. The first paradigm prevailed in the classical philosophy of science, the second one - in the nonclassical and postnonclassical epistemology. We define these paradigms and consider their potentialities, borderlines and correspondence to the real science.
