Marx and Engels, and all the major figures who they
subsequently influenced, would have disagreed. Here
is link to a letter to Engels, dated Jan 16, 1858.
And here is my very modest contribution after a reading of Hegel.
The 'empirical' is, of course, indispensable. But Positivism is a

of the the critical faculties of any revolutionary.
Didn't Marx refer to it as *Scheisspositivismus*? *Facts, facts, facts, only
facts matter*. So said Gradgrind in Dickenshttp://shaunpmay.wordpress.com
Take it easy (favourite motto of Engels)
