Abstract. The article reviews problems of the research of contemporary trends in the development of interdisciplinary anthropological knowledge. “Procreation” is a key definition in this process; its conceptualization occurs against the background of development of sociocultural norms accompanied by complication of the correlation of the fundamental and applied aspects of child birth by assisted reproductive technologies (ART). The interdisciplinarity, as confirmed by the ongoing study, has a positive direction in its decisions if there is a parallel process of formation of a dictionary (thesaurus) with its theme oriented towards the project’s discursive practices.
