Keywords:principle of equality, principle of justice, constitutionalism, methodology, interdisciplinary relation, law, state, human rights
The article considers common legal principals of equality and justice whose significance is increasing in the conditions of uncertainty and instability of the modern public order. Negativism of differentiation processes and increased social inequality studied by the legal science draws the attention of researchers to the cognition of constitutionalism ideas that can be used (as the authors believe) to overcome unfavorable situations related with adherence to and protection of the rights and freedoms of citizens defined by the Constitution of the Russian Federation. The principles of equality and justice having absolute value in the system of value and mentality institutes must serve a basis for the methodology of rule-making and enforcement activity. The authors also highlight the need to observe succession in the doctrine and practice of constitutionalism, namely the need for support in achieving pre-revolutionary and soviet legal science. In this light, the liberal approach to the principles of equality and justice cannot take the monopoly position and must be supplemented by other ideas developed in the science. Taking into account methodological positions, the specific features of implementing the principles of equality and justice must be the subject of doctrinal researches of the theory of state and law and constitutional law in the methodological synthesis of interdisciplinary relations.
