Accelerated social-economic development of the Socialist society and trends in the development of psychology

The state of psychological theory and applicability of knowledge it has acquired are analyzed in the light of the general task set recently before the Soviet science by the Communist Party - to contribute in an active and responsible way to qualitative transformation of all aspects of the Soviet society, particularly through development and stimulation of the human factor in all spheres of activity and at every stage of man's creative life. It is stated that further and deeper integration of psychological data obtained in complex, interdisciplinary studies is needed in order to reach understanding of fundamental regularities and mechanisms of man's psychological functioning. Soviet psychologists must take on ever more complicated real-life and wide-scale scienific and applied problems to achieve the socially required goals.
