Abstract. The research subject of the article is both world-entirety and a scientific knowledge of it. But not so much the world, a human and humanity are perceived as a contemporary scientific knowledge. The author sets a task to demonstrate that it may be a suitable tool for comprehension of a human and humanity. The realization of this potency requires rethinking of the Modern Age science introduced by a logical knowledge, which is, although necessary, no longer quite enough for understanding the reality shape as well as human and humanity transformation processes.

Keywords: science studies, global studies, world-entirety, world-knowledge, world-research, human universe, world universe
