Abstract: The evolution of theoretical physics in the XX century differs significantly from that in XVII-XIX centuries. While continuous progress is observed for theoretical physics in XVII-XIX centuries, modern physics contains many questions that have not been resolved despite many decades of discussion. Based upon the analysis of works by the founders of the XX-century physics, the conclusion is made that the roots of the “eternal” questions by the XX-century theoretical physics lie in the philosophy used by its founders. The conclusion is made about the need to use the ideas of philosophy that guided C. Huygens, I. Newton, W. Thomson (Lord Kelvin), J. K. Maxwell, and the other great physicists of the XVII-XIX centuries, in all areas of theoretical physics.
