The paper focuses on the method of general scientific epistemological substantiation of scientific theories. General scientific epistemological knowledge is a set of the ideals and norms of scientific research accepted in science. The general scientific epistemological substantiation of a scientific theory consists in demonstrating that the theory analyzed complies with generally accepted ideals and norms of scientific research and the criteria of scientific rationality.
