Some Basic Factors of Mathematization in Science

The paper is concerned with three basic factors - the factor of historical determination, syetemic appropriateness and ontologico-gnoseological presuppositions which according to the view of the author determine the possibility and limits of mathematisation in science. This topic ia exemplified by an analysis of axiomatisation and quantification in the contemporary measurement theory.
