The study was designed to apply formal-logics-based direct arguments to demonstrate the need in modern philosophical and sociological basics of integrative special physical culture and sport education process being developed. Analysis under the study spells out a number of reasons for the increasing priority needed to be given today to the philosophical and sociological basics of the integrative special physical culture and sport education process development initiatives. The initiatives are to change the present situation in the national special physical culture and sport science and, as verified by the analysis, build up (under whatever title) an integrative applied physical culture and sport education system and process as a relatively independent and highly important cognitive domain.
The integrative element may be considered both as a process and outcome of the initiatives. It should be mentioned that the developers of combined marginal theories normally call them integrated considering the integrated cognitive product as an accomplishment to be proud of and final outcome.
However, in view of the above specifics of the application education and the values-driven cultural process, it would be beneficial, in our opinion, to call it rather integrative/ integrating than integrated education to emphasize the evolutionary aspect of the applied education, i.e. considering it as a ongoing process with the integrative aspect viewed as pivotal in the educational domain and designed to address purely educational challenges.

Keywords: philosophical and sociological basics, integrative specific physical culture and sport education system.
