The Suppression of Philosophy in the USSR




Yakhot describes the flourishing of philosophical discussion in the newly-established Soviet Union, and its subsequent destruction by Stalin. Rare among works dealing with this period, this is an objective account of the theoretical role of the major figures in the early Soviet Union, including that of Leon Trotsky, co-leader with Lenin of the Russian Revolution of October 1917.
Originally published in Russian in 1981, this unique history of early Soviet philosophy is now available for the first time in English, translated by Frederick Choate
