The article is devoted to the analysis of spiritual heritage of philosopher G. S. Pomerants and poet Z. A. Mirkina. We study the evolution of the spiritual path as such, its stages, the specifics of these stages. One stage is not always replaced by another. It happens that any stage is formed in a separate path. The first of these paths is “grasping wisdom on the fly”. The second way is an attempt to reduce the truth to the system. As a stage of spiritual development, the second way is productive, and as a result it is doubtful. In their joint book “the Great religions of the world” Pomerants and Mirkina touch upon this extremely topical issue.
