The article is aimed at systematization of scientific views as to definition of the concept of «spatial polarization» and allocating scientific approaches on this basis. A typification of approaches and views of scientists towards use of the term of «polarization» has been carried out, taking into account the multi¬dimensional nature and interdisciplinary nature of the term. A generalization of the theoretical apparatus as to the studied issue provided for allocating the following approaches: system, geographical-regional, spatial-economic, glo¬balization, social. It is concluded that the concept of «spatial polarization» is sufficiently extensive, has different interpretations in the current science and is located at the junction of regional economics, economic geography and sociology, institutional economics, macroeconomics and demographics. How¬ever, most interpretations disclose its economic nature, which displays the unevenness of the socio-economic development. Theoretical generalization of interpretation and handling of the concept of «spatial polarization» has provided for allocating four approaches to its definition, namely: resource, factorial, resource-factorial and innovative
