In the article, the problem of correlation of individual and group work in scientific cognition is analyzed. Actuality of this problem is determined by presence of numerous scientific organizations and collectives in the structure of modern society. For clear reasons single scientists attract less attention, than organizations and collectives. In addition, psychic side of human mental activity is in a large degree enigmatic even nowadays. However, all this doesn’t cancel the circumstance that complex theoretical constructions usually appear as a result of individual creation. Information exchange promotes creation. In the same way, creation in the group adds some extra motivations to the process of scientific search, helping us sometimes to become free from tenseness. Nevertheless, the solutions of problems can come to the scientist even during sleep time. Consequently, collective work is appropriate to the situation of time deficit and more often studying of available knowledge, than to investigating of unknown things and building new paths. At the same time, people undoubtedly are able to inspire each other to intensive creative work. In this work, we can see certain compromise solution to the problem of correlation of individual and group work in scientific creation.
