Mao Zedong on Dialectical Materialism: Writings on Philosophy, 1937

By Mao Tse-tung; Nick Knight | Go to book overview
content of Mao "Extracts", but the right column (from b1 to b31) only the relevant, corresponding sections of Ai's essays.
5. Philosophical Annotations and Marginalia: From late- 1936 to mid-1937Mao annotated and wrote marginal comments on two Chinese translations of Soviet texts on philosophy. These were M. Shirokov and A. Aizenberg et al., A Course on Dialectical Materialism ( third edition) and M. B. Mitin et al., Dialectical Materialism and Historical Materialism (Volume I). Limitations of space prevent a complete translation of these annotations and marginalia here, for to make sense of Mao's often cryptic comments would require reproduction of large sections of the original text which Mao annotated. This is the strategy employed by the editors of Mao Zedong zhexue pizhuji (The Philosophical Annotations of Mao Zedong), a strategy which required 189 pages. I have chosen rather to select those annotations and marginal comments which are of sufficient coherence and significance to stand alone. I have, nevertheless, included the page numbers of the two texts on philosophy on which the annotations appear, as well as the relevant page numbers of Mao Zedong zhexue pizhuji. The interested reader can therefore locate any annotation in its original textual context should the need arise.
