Scientific Method of the Economic Theory: From Dialectics to Trialectics
The goal of the article is development of conceptual and theoretical grounds of the scientific method of the economic theory and also analysis of its essential characteristics and functional specific features. In order to clarify the essence of the scientific method, the article analyses and generalises main approaches to its definition and also marks out its main attributes. It shows that refusal of the modern economic theory to use the dialectical method limits its methodological potential to a big extent. At the same time, it justifies narrowness of the dialectic approach in some cases in the context of detecting contradictions and also incommensurability of two marked antipodes. It offers to develop the dialectical approach in the direction of expansion of the number of grounds, which is reflected in refusal to use binary analysis and synthesis in favour of the ternary one, etc. Thus, the dialectical method is transformed into the trialectical method. The use of the trialectical approach gives a possibility to consider any object in the form of a triune synthesis of its components and to consider its development not as a settlement of two contradictions but as a more complex synthesis of three origins. The prospect of further studies in this direction is in development of methodology of application of the method of trialectics in analysis of socio-economic problems of the modern society, which would allow a more fruitful use of reserves of inter-disciplinary studies, create a theoretical basis for poly-methodological synthesis of directions of the modern economic science.
