See Shlomo Avineri's Karl Marx: The Social and Political Thought of Karl

Bhasker might be of some use, if you can get through him.

Subject: Marx and Marxist epistemology


I was wanting to take a look at the epistemological basis of marx and
marxism.  This is not for a philisophy course but a social/political theory
course that is investigating certainty and the basis of knowlege.  In my
class Marxism was categorised as part of rationalist epistemology in
contrast to empiricism.  Yet I consider Marxism separate from both domains
due to its MATERIALIST framework.  I was wondering if people know of
materials on the epistemological framework of historical materialism and or
Marx's epistemology?
