This paper briefly substantiates the necessity and possibility of transitioning from the empirical ways of cognition, relying on analogues, and the heuristics, using guesses (intuition) and associations (imitation), to the methods, approaching to natural-science, i.e., based on productive abstractions (paradigms), capable of regularizing the accumulated experience of spontaneous formalization of conscious phenomena, and forming logical paradigm for optimization of the existing practices and development of fundamentally new ones. The proposed solution is based on the convergence of natural science and humanitarian knowledge. Convergence is possible due to the fact that the results of both types of cognition include material bodies that are of a physical or quasi-physical nature. Sign constructions, that is, well-formalized quasi-physical bodies, such as computer programs and data, are convenient objects for research. The convergence of knowledge includes several levels: objects of cognition (spheres of phenomena), phylogenesis (model of Paradigm Innovative Development) and ontogenesis (Vertical Integration of Knowledge), methods of cognition (Parabola of Knowledge).
