Transcript 28 FOUNDATIONS OF LENINISM power of orientation and an understanding of the inner connection between events; for it, and it alone, can help us in our practical work to discern how and in which direction classes are moving not only at the present time, but also how and in which direction they will move in the near future. Lenin himself said and often repeated his well-known thesis, that: "Without a revolutionary theory there can be no revolutionary movement." (What Is To Be Done?, Little Lenin Library, p. 28.) Lenin, better than any one else, understood the great importance of theory, particularly for a party like ours, in view of the role of vanguard fighter of the international proletariat which has fallen to its lot and in view of the complicated internal and international situation in which it finds itselfT^-Eoreseeing this special role of our Party, he thought it necessary, as far back as 1902, to point out that "the role of vanguard can be fidfillcd only by a party that is guided by an advanced theory." (Ibid.) Now that Lenin's prediction about the role of our Party has come true, it hardly needs to be proved that this thesis acquires special force and special significance. Perhaps the most striking expression of the great importance which Lenin attached to theory is shown in the fact that he himself undertook, in the realm of materialist philosophy, the very serious task of generalising all the most important achievements of science from the time of Engels down to his own time, as well as subjecting to comprehensive criticism the anti-materialistic currents among Marxists. Engels said that "materialism must take on a new aspect with each new great discovery." We all know that none other than Lenin fulfilled this task, as far as his own time was concerned, in his remarkable work, Materialism and Empirio-Criticism* It is well known that Plekhanov, who loved to chaff Lenin * V.
