    This is an interesting book. The most interesting section of it is to be found in the second part, and especially in Chapters 7 and 8, where an account is given of the development in Russia of the doctrine of dialectical materialism that enables one to see how alive philosophical discussion is in the U.S.S.R. and how one development follows another. To read it is like reading an account of the history of the first Councils of the Christian Church, to follow the rise of one heresy after another and to see the truth decided by the decision of the Council after discussion.
