The world crisis of the 60-s the beginning of the 90-s years of the past century covered the geographical science, which caused a general world tendency as strengthening sectoral differentiation of geographic subjects, but all this increased interest to integration, and to complex physical and social geography and the need to substantiate the unified geography. A historiographic analysis showed an attempt of foreign geographers to prove the unity of geography from excogitated unsubstantiated suggestions to abstract mathematical models or neglect of unity in general. It has been suggested to impossibility union of the two branches of geography in the near future.

Key words: 
physical geography, socio-economic geography, social geography, unity geography, the problem of unity, variants of unity, neglect unity geography
