Quote: ” . . . boundless rationality . . . “

The same boundless rationality, which is so much in accord with the revolutionary quality of the scientific method and the new philosophy, certainly as Bacon and the founders of the Royal Society saw it, belonged, more than to any other thinker, to Karl Marx. His conviction was that scientific socialism would extend the logic and universality of science into man’s social relations, not only learning the laws of social development, but deliberately aiding them. He makes this point most clearly in the Theses on Feuerbach, written in 1845, uniting Science, Technology and Society
