Biology Actualizes the New Aspects of the Philosophy of Science

The modem biology challenges the philosophy of science, acturlizing in it the new aspects of the old problems. One of them is the problem of the correlation of the theoretical and empirical knowledge. Being solved earlier on the basis of the development of the exact sciences, it is considerably supplemented with the development of the modem biology. One of the significant aspects, proposed by biology, is the problem of the adequacy of the theoretical and the empirical under the conditions when the formulated in the exact sciences theory is transferred to the empirical material, which got the primary theoretical treatment within the limits of biology. The process of achiveing their adequacy proposes both the modification of the theory and the change of the empirical material: its selection, quantification, reinterpretation etc. The attempts of formulating the principles of such mutual modification of the theoretical and the empirical in biology are considered here.
