References like this is a practical way of being evasive: The first
specific question was whether there are other scientific methods for
other classes and if so what they are?

Certainly the first paragraph of vol. 1 is not an explicit answer to the

    The wealth of those societies in which the capitalist mode of
    production prevails, presents itself as "an immense accumulation of
    commodities," its unit being a single commodity. Our investigation
    must therefore begin with the analysis of a commodity.

Again, this is avoiding my specific question, which was to give the
criteria for 'dialectics'.

Let me make it simpler then: What do you view as the criteria of the
science method?
