Lenin and the “organisation question” – historical reconstruction

The author continues his work on the legacy of Lenin on the so called organisation question. The study reconstructs Lenin's views on the party in the early days – showing it by historical sources. Revolutionary party can be established only in revolutionary times. Due to lack of revolutionary working class movement an emigrant syndrome had developed. The debate between Lenin and Bogdanov (1907-1912) after the failed revolution is exiting, because actual theoretical and methodological conclusions can be based on it. Lenin represented the Marxist approach to politics in a given historical situation against Bogdanov, Mensheviks and the so called leftist Bolsheviks.
