Abstract: The article deals with the new methodology of researching parliamentarism, and in particular the research of Georgian parliamentarism using the epistemological method. The use of this method is especially relevant for the study of so-called new democracies, since the structuralist method does not allow an in-depth analysis of the content, it cannot explain the context, hidden layers and undercurrents that give rise to and is a source of knowledge for political processes, in this case - for Georgian parliamentarism. The method proposed in the article is an adapted version of Michel Foucault's "archaeology of knowledge" policy, and Georgian parliamentarism, supplemented by one aspect of Derrida's deconstruction (in part of his critique of Foucault's 'History of Madness') and the concept of the 'conceptual character' developed by Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guitar. The article shows the utilitarian value of new epistemological research in the field of politics (and Georgian parliamentarism) through the analysis of a specific case.

Key words: epistemology, episteme, political research, parliamentarism, Georgian parliamentarism.
