Transcript INTRODUCTION The foundations of Leninism is a big subject. In order to exhaust it a whole volume is required. More than that, a whole series of volumes is necessary. Naturally, therefore, my lectures cannot serve as an exhaustive exposition of Leninism; at best they can be but a concise synopsis of the foundations of Leninism. Nevertheless, I consider it useful to give this synopsis in order to lay down some of the basic points of departure, which are necessary for the successful study of Leninism. But expounding the foundations of Leninism does not yet mean expounding the foundations of Lenin's conception of the world. Lenin's conception of the world and the foundations of Leninism are not co-extensive. Lenin was a Marxist and Marxism is naturally the foundation of his conception of the world. But it does not follow from this in the least that an exposition of Leninism ought to begin with an exposition of the foundations of Marxism. To expound Leninism means to expound that which is distinctive and new in the work of Lenin, which he contributed to the general treasury of Marxism and which is naturally connected with his name. It is only in this case that I shall speak of the foundations of Leninism in my lectures. And so, what is Leninism? According to some it is the application of Marxism to the peculiar conditions prevailing in Russia. This definition contains a grain of truth, but not the whole truth by any means. Lenin, indeed, applied Marxism to Russian reality and applied it masterfully. But if Leninism were only the application of Marxism to the peculiar situation in Russia
