Reflections on Lenin's book Materialism and Empirio-Criticism

This book by E V Ilyenkov, doctor of Philosophy and laureate of the Chernyshevsky Prize, is the result of years of the author's reflections on dialectics, dialectical logic and the theory of knowledge. This is a vivid account of the circumstances in which V I Lenin wrote Materialism and Empirio-Criticism, of the understanding of dialectics which Lenin defended in his book and developed further in his Philosophical Notebooks and his passionate struggle against Positivism and the positivist mode of thinking.

First published in Russian in 1980.
