It is remarkable that Lewis could get his lucid, introductory, and critical text into the popular “Teach Yourself” series. Note his critiques of Bergson, Whitehead, analytical and linguistic philosophy, and his conclusions. Marx is mentioned cursorily.

Note: This bibliography so far focuses on those figures associated at some point with the Communist Party of Great Britain. The proletarian autodidactic tradition prior to the emergence and dominance of the CPGB is included. The Australian Jack Lindsay is included, as he migrated to Britain and was a party member. British Trotskyists and others outside of the CPGB orbit, as well as others from the Commonwealth who lived in Britain, such as C.L.R. James (who was associated with the Trotskyist movement in the 1930s and 1940s), are not included.
