POLITICAL KNOWLEDGE (Understanding Differences, Overcoming Contradictions)
ALEXANDER RAHR (GERMANY) PAGE
In 1947, prominent Soviet scientists,military and public figures initiated the creation of the All-Union Society for the dissemination of political and scientific knowledge. Subsequently the Society was briefly called Znanie, but throughout its history it has been engaged in both scientific and political enlightenment. This tradition is continued by the International Association “Znanie”, which in 1991 became the successor of the All-Union Society.
On our site, the rubric “Political Knowledge” is run by the famous German political scientist Alexander Rahr.
