The paper looks into the essence of the method of philosophical substantiation of scientific theories. The method consists in achieving two goals: it proves the absence of logical contradictions between scientific theory and the generally accepted worldview, as well as the generally accepted ideals and norms of scientific research; and it interprets foundations of this scientific theory concretizing more general philosophical principles.
