In decision making quite often we face permanently changeable and potentially infinite databases when we cannot apply conventional algorithms for choosing a solution. A decision process on infinite databases (e.g. on a database containing a contradiction) is called troubleshooting. A decision on these databases is called creative reasoning. One of the first heuristic semi-logical means for creative decision making were proposed in the theory of inventive problem solving (TIPS) by Genrich Altshuller. In this paper, I show that his approach corresponds to the so-called content-generic logic established by Soviet philosophers as an alternative to mathematical logic. The main assumption of content-genetic is that we cannot reduce our thinking to a mathematical combination of signs or to a language as such and our thought is ever cyclic and reflexive so that it contains ever a history.

obtained results are discussed as well as their interconnections and the advisability of implementing the BIZ-TRIZ mechanism. Finally, the article is summarised, providing general conclusions. 1 Literature review TRIZ is the Russian acronym for “теория решения изобретательских задач”, which can be translated as the Theory of Inventive Problem Solving ( Cempel, 2013 ; Chybowski & Idziaszczyk, 2015b ). It is a methodology that was developed by Russian inventor Genrich Altshuller, who started working on it in 1946. Altshuller continued developing TRIZ until his death in
