Understanding differences, overcoming contradictions



        In 1947 prominent soviet scientists, servicemen and politics initiated the creation of the All-Union Society for dissemination of political and scientific knowledge. Subsequently, the Society obtained short title “Znanie”, however during its whole history it dealt with both scientific and political education. This tradition is continued by International Association “Znanie”, which became legal successor of the All-Union Society in 1991.
