The paper deals with the revaluation of the concept „social consciousness“. In view to this appraisal the unjustification of the identification of the concept „social being“ and „conditions of the existence of the society“ is discussed. The relation between the concepts „consciousness, knowing and social consciousness“ is defined and the activity of social consciousness and its theoretical basis in Marxist-Leninist epistemology is explained. A qualitatively newsource of the activity of the socialist social consciousness and its persistent increasing are studied.
