A.V. Argunov,
Candidate of Legal Sciences, Junior Researcher of Department of Civil, 
Commercial and Administrative Procedure of the Russian Academy of Justice

The article analyses some of the Buddhist philosophy, and their uses to solve scientific problems in the sphere of civil process. Philosophical set of Buddhism-recognizing all that accustomed to our mind in reality do not exist as independent entities, is useful for critical reflection of science civil process. In the context of the Buddhist theory of knowledge you can question the adequacy of the Marxist theory of reflection that underlies the theory of proof and evidence. If you accept the notion that consciousness is not simply records the existing independent of the properties, but also is involved in their formation, i.e. has the ability to affect the physical processes, it can be concluded that the Court may not know the actual circumstances of the case, both the facts that he was watching, and the facts that he can watch himself. The Court noted the facts – he creates them, i.e. cognition judge creates a new reality, not observed earlier. 

Keywords: Buddhism; interdependence; void; subject of regulation of civil procedure law; proof; the principle of the independence and impartiality of the Court.
