The conclusion that has been drawn from our previous analyses is that methodology ignores, generally speaking, the method of idealization. The question arises, therefore, why is this method revealed in Marx’s methodological remarks, though unsystematic and sometimes unclear as they are? Why does his philosophy pose the problem of idealization? I think that an answer to this is related to the ontological assumptions of the Marxian philosophy.
