Abstract: 

There is no definite tradition to separate an epistemology of the collective cognitive processes as the specific field of the gnoceology. But there is a real foundation for selfdetermination of the field – existence of the “collective cognitive phenomena”. They manifest themselves only in nonindividual cognitive processes. Till nowadays in professional publications such phenomena were fixed, represented and discussed in the framework of such new themes as communicative rationality, problem of the conventions, problem of the testimonial knowledge. The author makes attempt to show that family of the collective cognitive phenomena is wider then it is traditionally discussed and perceived. And it is not clear at all how many other new phenomena can be discovered. That is why it is useful and important (as author think) to fix clear and specially that epistemology of the collective cognitive processes is specific and independent new dimension of the epistemological work. In this connection content of the article includes representation and analysis of the phenomena, which are not in the focus of the philosophical community yet.

Keywords:
