The logic premise of Marx's philosophy od science and technology is that Marx did not ambiguously end capital as an independent mode of production with exploitation,and did not argue that capital as a dominant mode of production in the whole society,namely the capitalist mode of production,simply equaled exploitation form,but affirmed the other side of capital in the history.Firstly,because this mode of production takes the dominance of the nature as the premise and the pursuit of surplus value(especially relative surplus value) as the core motivation,it is destined to development of natural science to its vertex and has the tendency of giving production scientificalness and reducing necessary labor of workers to a minimum;secondly,owing to the discovery,creation and satisfaction of new needs of the society,this mode of production plays a huge driving role in the whole construction of modern social scientific knowledge system.The other side of Marx's philosophy of science and technology is of practice significance to further implantation of innovation-driven development strategy or the idea of innovation development in China.
