In the paper, the author analyses the methodology of Soviet historicophilosophical studies and demonstrate that its fundamental characteristics are: identity of logical and historical and of historical and systematic principles, identity of the principle of party-mindedness and that of science-based research, and identity of method and theory. The author argues that the adherence to this logic has deprived Soviet history of philosophy of the criteria of truth, led to internal contradictions and therefore turned it into a pseudoscience. In the final analysis, Soviet history of philosophy had, in fact, axiological foundations and served generally the purpose of developing the Marxist worldview.
Keywords: Soviet history of philosophy, science, methodology, system of science, dialectics, materialism
