In different economics systems,there exist different theoretical understandings of the scientific nature of economics,thus forming different research methods and theoretical views.The narrow and limited idea which classifies Marxist economics as being normative and western economics as being empirical results from the limited understanding of the scientific nature of economics and a limited understanding of the Marxist economics methodology.The theoretical views revealed in Capital and other Marxist works reveals the scientific and economic nature of economics,thus forming the totality methodology that is different from the individualist and falsificationist methodology of the western economics.However,the methodology in Captial is not limited to the totality methodology,it also displays the coherent methodology beased on the scientific understanding of economics.Therefore,the methodology in Capital is the combination of totality methodology and coherent methodology,thich requires not only normative research to make clear its academic ground and theoretical views but statistical and empirical research to enhance the accuracy and persuasiveness of the theoretical research,which constitutes an important theoretical perspective to develop and etend modern Marxist economics research methodology.
