Starting from the basic equations of solids we have shown one possible construction of the modification method of the law of heat conduction. Based on this method the steps of development can be outlined, the sequence and role of the tasks can be established. As an additional result we managed to highlight some aspects of the cognitive process, which emerge in the course of natural scientific research.
