"(Lecture Notes)" in Ji only. The date 1938 appears in both Ji and Bujuan. However, this date almost certainly refers to the date of publication, rather than composition. On this issue, see the Introduction to this volume, particularly notes 2 and 17.

9.
This quote is an inverted and rather loose translation of a passage from Lenin "On the Question of Dialectics", in V. I. Lenin, Collected Works ( London: Lawrence & Wishart, 1961), Vol. 38, p. 363. In Bujuan, the inverted commas cease before "This is very true".
10.
This last sentence in Bujuan only.
11.
"... as a result of the practice of the proletariat..." in Bujuan only.
12.
"... results..." in Bujuan only.
