The book traces process of difficult relationships between scientific and extra-scientific knowledge. It is shown that on our planet there are two kinds of knowledge: one is produced and continues to be produced naturally and historically in the process of deployment of anthroposociocultural genesis in the field of science; others already existed at the time of creation of science (which has come down in myths, sacred and esoteric texts, and been objectified in various artifacts such as Stonehenge, the Pyramids of Giza and Mesoamerica, etc.), and their origin is still the subject of discussions.

Author is Alexander A. Khamidov, PhD, professor, chief researcher at the Institute of Philosophy, Political and Religious Science, Science Committee of the Ministry of Education and Science of the Republic of Kazakhstan.

The book shows not only the confrontation of science and extra-scientific forms of knowledge, which has been initiated by science, but also cases of synergy and convergence of scientific knowledge with extra-scientific knowledge, that induced the scientific progress.

The book is devoted to philosopher professionals and all those interested in current research in the field of history and philosophy of science.
