The logic of history is interpreted in this paper not only as the laws of the development of the past, but also of the present and the future humanity.

From the point of view of the author the general direction of the historical processes a spiral-like development of society. Mankind during the time of its existence has experienced and goes through one great coil of this spiral-like development, which has not been completed yet. The general outline of this coil can be foreseen quite enough for certain.  

From the point of view of the structure of the society, taken in connection with its development, the society consists in its developing totality, which goes through several stages in its development: the stage of the creation of historical preconditions for the essence of the human society (this stage also can be named as the beginning of history of mankind), the stage of the primary emergence of the humankind’s society essence, the stage of formation of human society and the stage of its maturity. We are talking here about the progressive development of mankind. The whole coil of the mentioned spiral-like development is the era of progressive development of the humankind.

Within this conceptual framework this paper will be focused on such questions: What is morality? What is politics? How do they interact in the process of this historical development?
