In the article it is offered to consider the structure of proving in normative and logical and pragmatist aspects. The normative structure of proving is represented by four elements: collecting, check, assessment and use of evidence. The active structure, according to the authors, includes: formation of proofs, their check, assessment and use. The pragmatist structure of the very formation of proofs reflects active and passive aspects of cognitive activity of subjects of proof.
