    The social character of people’s attitude to each other is developing regarding the conditions, the process, and the result of labour attitude towards nature, regarding the mode of production. The movement for socialism, the revolutionary process, emerges as a necessity based on the contradictoriness development of the social character of labour. Early Socialism emerges and develops on a material and technical base, which by no means corresponds to socialism, under the conditions of the insufficiently socialised character of labour, while the capitalistic world has the supremacy in the correlation of forces. The basic contradiction of early socialism is the contradiction between the relations of production and productive forces, between social property of the means of production (formal socialization, nationalization) and insufficient growth, « immaturity » of social character of production, or, in other words, the contradiction between formal and real socialization. The theoretical and methodological approach of “The Logic of History” to the fundamental problems of social development provides a key to the comprehension of an objective reason for a number of social phenomena, thus opening a whole spectrum of research approaches.
