Hi Ajit.

> Any way, I don't even know what you mean by positivism.

While there have been many different variants and traditions of
positivist thought (see especially the bottom two sites below), here
are some sources on positivism on the Net:

You can find a short 'quick and dirty'  Marxian definition at:

Fuller critical discussions of positivism by Ilyenkov (hi Andy)
and by George Novack can be found at marxists.org:

A shorter, more sketchy Marxist source by David Hookes:

For an explanation of the historical evolution of positivism
and its different varieties, see the entries in the "Dictionary of the
History of Ideas":
(the entry on "Positivism in Latin America" by Ronald Hilton
is quite interesting and, perhaps, worthy of discussion.)

A site with lots of links:

 In solidarity, Jerry
