How to use "Positivist" in context?
There is no one singular philosophy that can be labelled as positivist, as the term has been used to describe various schools of thought throughout history. However, there are some general characteristics that all positivist philosophies share. One of the most important principles of positivism is that knowledge is based on hard evidence rather than on intuition or personal belief. Positivists also believe that knowledge can be expressed in a quantitative form, and that the scientific method is the best way to gather and verify information.
