The article is devoted to the study of the use of some categories of dialectics both in identifying
and in studying the problems of civil and arbitral procedure law. Each category allows
to reveal its own peculiar features and properties of the branch of law and its structural
subdivisions, not only to obtain certain conclusions, but, what is equally important, to
put into research its own problems, the answer to which the use of this or that particular
category gives. It is noted that each category allows to reveal some one side of the subject
of research, but to reveal in depth. In particular, the author argues that a comprehensive
disclosure of the essence of civil procedure law is impossible with the use of any one category.
Only by covering all or most of them it is possible to fully and comprehensively disclose the
essence of the subject of research. At the same time, each method implies the study only
of certain problems, conditioned by it. The study of some other problems, “alien” to this
method will not give the necessary results. Thus, it is impossible to solve the problems of
the system of branch of law with the help of the activity approach.

Keywords: categories of dialectics; quantity; quality; negation; whole and part; form and
content; singular; general and particular; civil procedure; arbitration procedure.
