In the progressive press of the period between the wars it was L. Szántó who had an outstanding merit in seeing Leninism through to be understood as an organic part, as a stage in the development of Marxistn. Evaluating the character of Lenin's work he takes the scientific substantiation of the class-character and the party-character of philosophy, science and art for one of his greatest merits. L. Szántó modernized and concretized successfully Lenin’s proposed principle of the class-character and the party-character even in our domestic conditions. L.
