The paper focuses on the issue of the entanglement of the constructivist literary scholarship in constructivist, cognitive and the system-theoretical discourse. The transdisciplinarity has proved to be very productive in a whole range of the attempts to renovate the literary science. The theorem of the constructiveness of the observation and of the knowledge gave a new direction to the literary science. It is even referred to as a change of paradigm, or a transition from a pre-paradigmatic to a paradigmatic science. In the radical constructivist discourse, which is characterized by interdisciplinarity, the concepts of empiricity, cognition and communication has been redefined. Nevertheless, the meta-theoretical, trans- or interdisciplinary, epistemic, philosophical and methodological foundations of the constructivist literary scholarship are confronted with the problem of the practicability of such claims and the question of their reconciliation.
