Peculiarities and development tendencies of Russian humanities both common for Russian and European (mainly German and French) science and purely original are considered. The relationships of psychology, philosophy, natural sciences and art is analyzed. The approach to art as to a form of human existence investigation is shown to be leading to a choice of language and word (in its various forms) analyses as an analytical method appropriate for both areas (science and art). The first third of the XX century concepts review shows that it is this period which was one of the most fruitful in the history of Russian science and art.

Keywords: Russian psychology, philosophy, science of science, art, language, the inner form of a word
