Abstract: 

Alexander Antonovski, Alexandra Argamakova, Vladimir Krzhevov and Alexander Nikiforov  try to show the difficulties in the interpretation of social and human studies as a  nomothetic project along with the inapplicability of nomothetic-idiographic classification scheme for contemporary research. They also claim that the intention of using different methods for “natural” and “cultural” phenomenon research may cause the range of controversies and problems – moreover, it seems to be impracticable at all.

Keywords: 
social theory, nomothetic method, free will, values, social dynamics, regularities of social development.
