I am currently writing a paper on new agricultural technologies 
based on biotechnology and genetic engineering. I am arguing 
that the claims made on behalf of these technologies are based 
on  a narrow positivistic view deriving from reductionist science. 
I wish to use some of Marx's perspectives on positivism. Can 
someone tell me the best source for Marx's views on positivism?

Thanks in advance
