Introducing the issue of the beginnings of life into the realm of scientific research posed a danger to 'valid' structures of knowledge (in particular, to the separation of philosophy and the sciences). For a couple of tens of years, (some) scientists have paid for dealing with this issue with ignoring the 'touchy' problem of its 'extra-scientific' groundings. This strategy proved to be erroneous. Similarly, the attempts at summarizing the whole discipline as one theory (although under different names) with the model of 'Darwin's small pond' (the model, as is shown, has been in many accounts substantially modified) are invalid. In the discipline, there is something common, and it is statement philosophical in character: that the life is an emergent feature of matter.
