The article reveals the concept of “uncertainty” in the context of culture, science and practice. The notions of uncertainty in different schools and concepts in the field of philosophy and psychology are compared. The hypotheses of the uncertainty phenomenon are explained in detail. The article describes a clinical analysis of five types of subjective attitude to uncertainty, based on the research of scientists: M. K. Mamardashvili, T. E. Sokolova and other experts in the field of subjective attitude to uncertainty. At the end of the article, the data of the scientific interview is given. The article also presents research by modern scientists: Byrne, Peters, Willis, Phan, Worthy (2020), who demonstrated in their research the psychological States of respondents with high uncertainty. The article goes on to describe in more detail the types of research that demonstrate the concepts of acute and moderate stress, tolerance, and other important factors that influence attitudes to uncertainty. The following describes a study aimed at disaster risk reduction, researchers: Schueller, Booth, Fleming, Abad (2020), who developed a disaster risk reduction (DRR) recommendation for stakeholders, which is designed to assess how uncertainty affects the processing of early warning information and subsequent decision-making (for example, an evacuation order), embedded in fictitious geo-graphical, policy and practical conditions. This topic: "Uncertainty as an important determinant in psychological science and practice" is relevant in modern society. The conclusions reveal the content of the data obtained, the analysis of the attitude to uncertainty as a phenomenon of science and practice.
