The article presents the results of a theoretical analysis of the phenomenon language of the psychological science. The purpose of the study is to propose a formal model that would allow to convey the specific features of the language of psychological science. Procedures for analysis and modeling of the language of science were used to solve the research problems. For this purpose, natural science analogies were used, in particular, the mathematical model of the so-called "Whitney folds". It has been found that psychology is at the intersection of the humanities and the natural spheres of knowledge In psychological research there is a complex paradox of scientific language. It sounds like this: how to describe ambiguous humanities categories and concepts in the unambiguous language of mathematics. Working to solve this paradox, we have developed a mathematical approach to modeling multivalued semantics using unambiguous mathematical codes. This approach was based on the mathematical theory of catastrophes. We were able to present such complex and multifaceted phenomena as the humanities and natural sciences in the form of a topological model. The model is based on the topological "Whitney fold". It contains unambiguous-multifaceted correspondences between a sign (concept) and its content. The object of modeling was a unit of meaning, which we called a semantic convolution. Semantic convolutions were divided into unambiguous (monosemantic convolutions) and multivalued (polysemantic). Тhe first were considered as the basic units of the language of the natural sciences and the rational-logical thinking that underlies them, the second - as the basic units of the humanities and the intuitive thinking that underlies them. The topological model of scientific thinking, which was created, allowed to give a mathematical interpretation of complex unambiguous-multifaceted semantic mechanisms in the process of scientific and psychological cognition.
