Eine Einführung in die Logik (Logical Speech rules: An Introduction to Logic), Berlin, 1975. In addition he published some two hundred articles. Zinoviev says that he began his systematic, scientific investigation of Soviet society in the post-Stalin years (Zinoviev, 1989a:329). He had already established in his youth that the evils in Soviet life could not be attributed to Stalin's personality, but to the Communist social order itself. However, it was only after graduation that he felt equipped to put his studies on a scientific basis and to begin to invent a methodology, and moreover a methodology for study in isolation.

That year was particularly marked by 'contradictions'. It was the year during which he was elected a member of the Finnish Academy of Sciences, an honour of which he was particularly proud since Finnish work in logic was held in high esteern. During the same year, articles were published in the 20 Prolegomena journal Filosofskie nauki (Philosophical Sciences) 'demonstrating' that Zinoviev's academic work was devoid of scientific value. It was also the year during which he was refused permission to take part in an international symposium held in his own institution!

He decided that it was time to settle accounts with his society. By his own lights he had spent all his adult life in service to that society. He had been a brilliant student, had fought throughout the war, had established hirnself as a scholar with an international reputation, bringing honour not only to hirnself but also to Soviet scholarship. He had lived according to an honourable code, had been an exemplary teacher and had been extremely popular with his students. Vet he had not been accepted as fully 'sound' by his colleagues or by the authorities.
