The key issue of the article is the "new sociality", which is constituted with post-industriality and the ways of its local configurations. The "new sociality" has made significant adjustments to the interpretation of traditionally researched social processes and phenomena, and has made it possible to identify previously unknown processes and phenomena. Therefore, the actual task is the development of new methodologies that will deepen the notion of the social processes and phenomena that existed in the field of modern science. It is emphasized that these processes and phenomena have also changed qualitatively and quantitatively. The author claims that a critical view is also needed on what problems arise in sociopsychological knowledge. The main attention is paid to revealing the reasons for discrediting science arising in modern Ukrainian sociopsychological researches. It is shown this is due to the diffusion of methodologies, the transit of research procedures and the characteristics of institutional discursive practices. Two gaps are analyzed: 1) between the possibilities of social cognition, which proposes a model of the rhizome society, and the prescriptions of the utility of social knowledge, inherited from the Enlightenment and Modernity; 2) between many-to-many relationships between elements of the rhizome and quantitative procedures for processing the results of empirical researches. It is shown that the danger of "vulgar constructionism" is manifested in the fact that discursive ontology is a breeding ground for interventions that violate the methodological clarity of the vision of the social object (politicization of the social realm, culturalization of the social realm, moralization of the social realm).
