The period of the Slovak National Rising holds its importance also in the research of the history of philosophic thought in Slovakia especially because it is here that the decisive ideologic struggle, the struggle of Marxist-Leninist ideology and philosophy against bourgeois ideology took place. From the point of view of the development of Marxist-Leninist philosophy and ideology the importance of the national movement of liberation and the Slovak National Rising must be sought in the fact that in this phase the Marxist-Leninist ideologies grew mature and the inevitable social-political preconditions for the real development of Marxist-Leninist philosophy were created. The most substantial problems of philosophical-theoretical and ideological character which were of eminent importance in the activity of the CP of Slovakia were the national question, patriotism and proletarian internationalism, democracy, class struggle and socialist revolution, the principles of the capitalist and socialist socio-economic system, the origins and substance of fascism, democratization of culture and science and the solving of these problems on the platform of the materialist conception of history. The paper aims to show the extention and the depth of solving of these questions in the period under investigation, supporting mainly on the insurrectional press and to mark out persons who brought the greatest deal to the development and propagation of ideas of Marxism-Leninism.
