Hi Martin,
I found it --- in Russian, vol.1 of "Sobranie Sochinenii", on page 416.
It reads in Russian as very similar to the English quote your posted above:

"Ведь -- after all-- краеугольным камнем материализма -- a corneestone of
materialism -- является положение о том, -- is a proposition about, --- что
сознание и мозг есть продукт --- (that) consciousness and the brain are,

Or something like this.

Hope this is helpful, and not making things more confusing.
