A depositivist style is an archival style, predicated on and powered by a commitment to selecting and curating data in excess of what you need or know.
positivist interpretivism haunts us, or rather haunts the system in the metaphorics of ground, grounding, grounded theory. That there’s a security to your interpretations, reasonings, analyses, and that those in turn (i.e. simultaneously) make “security” their framing logic.
