NOTES

  [377] "Notebooks " -- "Notes of an Ordinary Marxist on Philosophy" -- was written by Lenin in 1906 in connection with Bogdanov's book Empirio-monism (Issue III). Lenin deals with these "Notes" in greater detail in his letter to Gorky dated February 25, 1908 (see Vol. 13 of this edition).    [p. 393]

  [378] The Bolshevik Centre was elected by the Bolshevik group of the Fifth (London) Congress of the R.S.D.L.P. in 1907.    [p. 393]

  [379] Lenin is referring to his article "Marxism and Revisionism" published in the symposium Karl Marx -- 1818-1883, in which he stated for the first time in print that he would shortly write a number of articles or a separate book against the neo-Humist and neo-Berkeleyian revisionists -- Bogdanov, Bazarov and others (see Vol. 15, pp. 29-39, of this edition).    [p. 393]
