The association is considered between P. K. Anokhin's ideas and the concept of universal evolutionalism. The interrelation is also analyzed of P. K. Anokhin's concept with the theory of self-organizing systems. The present views on the self-organization principle are analyzed. The prerequisites of development are considered and the content is presented of the main principles of synergetics. A thesis is advanced about the incorrect application of the knowledge concerning self-organization of physicochemical systems to biological and social systems. A conclusion is substantiated that P. K. Anokhin's theory of functional systems is of important significance for development of a new trend in synergetics, i.e., neurosynergetics.
