Progress in socialism has qualitatively quite a different character in comparison with the preceding types of progress. It is consciously controlled, planned and realized in the interest of the whole society, it has harmonious character. The advancement of science and technology, the growth of social wealth are directed to satisfying of spiritual-cultural needs of Man, to forming of a new personality. Socialist society develops as humanism in practice because the social progress is dialectically bound with free and all-round development of each individual. The chief and general criterion of social progress is Man himself, his endless selfimprovement.
