EN The article shows the relationships and dependencies of history, polemology and origins of wars. These sciences, due to their research area, play an important role in identifying trends related to the wars of the past and the present. According to the study of wars, taking into account certain elements of the history and polemology sciences, it is possible to forecast the causes and conditions of future wars and armed conflicts. In polemology, study of armed conflicts and wars are carried out on three levels: theoretical study of conflicts, discursive study of war and peace, as well as a detailed examination of conflict situations. With such a specific subject, it follows a consistent methodological. Adopted is that the multiplicity of research methods is a consequence of the diversity of research subjects. And, therefore, filed study polemology instructs to use methods with different teachings, what is to be understood not as interdisciplinarity in sense of methodology. Polemology is part of the social sciences, which lean towards methodological holism.
