History and Society

The article is based on an abbreviated and revised text of the paper prepared jointly by A. I. Danilov, V. V. Ivanov, M. P. Kim, Y. S. Kukushkin, A. M. Sakharov and N. V. Sivachov and read at the 14th International Congress of Historical Sciences in San Francisco (August 1975). The article traces the interrelations between history and society, examines the question concerning the social nature of historical science, subjects to criticism the idealistic interpretations of this problem and expounds the propositions of Marxism-Leninism on this particular theme. The authors focus their attention on graphically demonstrating the role played by Soviet historical science in the building of socialism and communism. The article also examines the present-day methods of historical cognition and shows their role in social development. The authors convincingly prove the insolvency of contemporary bourgeois methodological conceptions,

Y. I. SHESTAK. The Bankruptcy of the Socialist-Revolutionary Party's Breakaway Maximalist Group

The article briefly surveys the history of the Socialist-Revolutionary Party's breakaway Maximalist organization belonging to those political parties and groups which represented petty-bourgeois "Leftist" trends in Russia. Drawing on new documentary materials, the author shows the Maximalists' practical activity, the process of their evolution and the character of their relations with the Bolshevik Party. The attention in the article is focussed on substantiating the objective inevitability of the bankruptcy of the petty-bourgeois Maximalist organization, which corroborated the truth of the Marxist-Leninist proposition, that any attempt to come out against the Communists under the flag of petty-bourgeois revolutionism is bound to transform the party making such an attempt into an obstacle to the revolutionary process, into a pliant tool of the reactionary forces, leading it to divorcement from the masses, to the political and organizational collapse.

E. A. SHULEPOVA. The Establishment and Functioning of the U.S.S.R. State Committee on Art

The article analyzes the practical activity in the prewar period of the U.S.S.R. State Committee on Art-the first Soviet state agency set up by the U.S.S.R. Council of People's Commissars for administering art affairs. The functioning of this body is viewed in close connection with the tasks of developing all forms of socialist art and heightening their role in the communist education of the working people. The author draws the conclusion that the principle of state guidance of art is conducive to the fullest possible satisfaction of the rising cultural requirements of all members of socialist society. A close analysis of the Committee's functions, the basic forms and trends of its activity convincingly refutes the allegations of bourgeois propaganda that Soviet art is a victim of bureaucratic administration.

A. G. KUZMIN. At the Sources of the Novgorod Chronicles

The article examines the question of the earliest chronological recording of events in Novgorod and its reflection in different chronicles. The author corroborates the conclusions of A". A. Shakhmatov and B. A. Rybakov that the earliest recording of historical events in Novgorod dates back to the mid-11th century. The article proves that the earliest chronological recording of events in Novgorod is reflected in 15th- century chronicles more fully than in "A Tale of Temporal Years." This observation is important for appraising materials in relatively later chronicles, for which there are no analogies in "A Tale of Temporal Years." The author expresses the opinion that the chronological recording of historical events in Russia was never reduced to the sole tradition but was conducted parallel in different places.

G. A. ALEXEYEV. Karl Marx's Revolutionary-Democratic Publicistic Works

The publicistic works of Marx analyzed by the author laid the groundwork for the revolutionary democratism of a higher type than that produced by the Enlightenment and the classical bourgeois revolutions. The deepening crisis and polarization of the opposing trends among the followers of Hegelian philosophy accelerated this process. Marx extend-

ed the boundaries of politics, making the social relations of men and the condition of the masses its "focal point." The place of Hegel's ideal - progressive movement, which does not bear a form of change, was taken by the revolution as a problem, as a theoretical subject, as the central point of seeking a correct world outlook. Marx upheld his convictions in constant clashes with reaction, in irreconcilable struggle against conservatism and liberalism, against pseudo-revolutionism. Every one of his publicistic works produced in 1842 represents a step forward from theoretical criticism and "empirical" study of objective reality in the light of revolutionary- democratic convictions to materialism and scientific communism.

K. V. KOMAROV. President Rivadavia's Agrarian Reforms

The article highlights the activity of President B. Rivadavia of Argentina in 1826 - 1827, showing his efforts to introduce state ownership of land and make it the basis of the country's further development. As a measure of bourgeois progress, Rivadavia's agrarian reforms became possible in conditions when capitalist relations in Argentina were still in the process of formation and when a considerable proportion of the land was owned by the state. The defeat suffered by President Rivadavia was the last milestone in the struggle carried on by the bourgeois-radical wing of the May 1910 revolution for a democratic agrarian policy. During the de Rosas dictatorship (1835 - 1852) the latifundists solved the agrarian question in their own interest.

The first thing that inspired me to this discovery is the shock that the researchers of superconductivity experience. And this is understandable. If the conduction current is formed by free electrons, then why does superconductivity increase when free electrons practically disappear, freezing to atoms. Secondly, this is the obstinacy of the Russian scientist, Dr. Fedyukin Veniamin Konstantinovich, who doubted that superconductivity exists. He writes: “Proceeding from the general scientific, ideological position and practice that there is opposition to every action and there is resistance to any movement, it can be argued that resistance and electric current along the conductor should be. Therefore, the so-called "superconductivity" electric current is not, and can not be. "

According to our hypothesis, the conversion of electrons and positrons into each other occurs by replacing the charge motion vector with the opposite vector. This is explained by the fact that all elements of the electron's magnetoelectric system are opposite to all elements of the positron's magnetoelectric system. And this opposite is determined by the vector of their movement in space. Therefore, it is only necessary to change the motion vector of one of the charges to the opposite vector, so immediately this charge turns into its antipode.

The article gives my short life story with a list of my discoveries. May the terrible moralists forgive me, I call these hypotheses discoveries because their logical connectedness and conformity with the materialistic dialectic of thinking does not allow to doubt that truth has been found here.

I wrote this article when I was 33, and I, who did not understand anything in physics, but who had logical thinking, were outraged by those alogisms and paradoxes that flowed from Einstein’s logic of relativity theory. But it was criticism at the level of emotions. Now, when I began to think a little bit in physics, and when I discovered the law of the difference of gravitational potentials, and based on it I built a five-dimensional frame of reference, it is now possible to prove the inaccuracy of Einstein’s theory of relativity at the level of physical laws.

istory make the masses. But the masses are ruled by leaders. The influence of an individual on the development of social processes is the greater, the greater the influence this personality has on the consciousness of individuals, as well as on the social consciousness of groups, classes and nations. The formula of Marx's social progress — the developing productive forces of society outgrow their production relations, throw them off and give birth to new ones — true, but only with Lenin's amendment: man is the main productive force of humanity.

The fundamental difference between a herd of animals and a human society is the presence of social laws formed by the consciousness of people in human society. Anthroposociogenesis is the process of forming into the consciousness of hominids of social laws, through the indefinite and combinational variability of genotypes with the elimination of those hominids that are not capable of subjecting their activity to laws.

Comparing all that is united by the concept of "mine" with all that is united by the concept of "not mine" the concept of "I" is born. Here begins the development of the individual consciousness of modern man, here began the development and individual consciousness of fossil people. It also began its development and public power, which initially could not have any other form, as soon as the form of protection of a mother who realized her motherhood to her children. Both individual consciousness and public power originate in the form of legal consciousness, and, first of all, in the form of awareness of the issues of belonging of certain objects to certain individuals, that is, in the form of awareness of the concepts "mine is not mine", "my child is not my child".

Dialectics is often called the tool of knowledge of nature. But, in the opinion of the author of this article, this tool is still as imperfect as the scissors would be imperfect, without the central screw uniting the two blades of this tool. This "cog" in dialectics is the fact that the "struggle" of opposites, which is the driving force behind the development of all processes of nature, is not absolute. "Struggle" is born when the dialectic system deviates from the state of equilibrium, and the goal of this "struggle" is to restore the lost equilibrium of the system.
