A variant of development of a complete system of theoretical and research methodology is presented. It is shown that the basis for theoretical methodology in designing categorical system is historical-genetic approach which also can be used for structuring and developing programs (designs) and methods of research of mentality in situation of social transitivity. The role of two levels of determination of mental development, and, first of all, the cultural determination which promotes individualization of social space-time is demonstrated. The psychological nature of chronotope is revealed; the relationship of different aspects of chronotope and different disciplines and discourses is proved. The introduction of passionarity and constructionism ideas into psychological studies as well as the necessity to combine various methods and technologies is substantiated.

Keywords: historical-genetic approach, methodology, methods of psychology, chronotope, emotional experiences, culture and art psychology
