These consist of the programmatic description of communist society, which will bridge the gap between man and nature by abolishing the individual and personality, and resolve the riddles and contrasts that have plagued philosophy for thousands of years.

A article by Amadeo Bordiga on the role which Germany played in the two world wars and which the author expected it to play in a future communist revolution, translated into English for the first time.

The Science and Passion of Communism
Login via Institution. Editor: Pietro Basso. Author: Amadeo Bordiga. The Science and Passion of Communism presents the battles of the brilliant Italian communist Amadeo Bordiga in the revolutionary cycle of the post-WWI period, through his writings against reformism and war, for Soviet power and internationalism, and then against fascism, on one side, Stalinism and the degeneration of the International, on the other.
Amadeo Bordiga was the first leader of the Italian communist party, which he helped found in , along with Antonio Gramsci, who became better known. Bordiga began his political activity in the Italian Socialist Party PSI in , where he immediately identified with its left wing. During the Italian colonial war against Libya September to October many members of the FGSI agitated against the war amongst conscripts — while PSI parliamentary representatives voted for it. After the outbreak of the first world war in , Bordiga became more and more antiparliamentarian. He worked for the organisation of the Camera del Lavoro trade union centre in Naples. Bordiga is not well-known, partly because he fell out with the Bolshevik leadership in Russia.

Bordiga was originally associated with the PCd'I, but he was expelled in after being accused of Trotskyism. Later on following World War II , Bordiga moved more explicitly towards a left communist position and was one of the more notable Western European representatives of this tendency. Bordiga was born at Resina in the province of Naples. He rejected a pedagogical approach to political work and developed a "theory of the Party", whereby the organization was meant to display non-immediate goals as a rally of similarly minded people and not a necessary body of the working class. However, Bordiga was deeply opposed to representative democracy which he associated with bourgeois electoralism :. Therefore, Bordiga opposed the parliamentary faction of the PSI being autonomous from central control.
