"Explicitness against implicitness, insistence on the obvious as against avoidance of the obvious, numerical assessment as against avoidance of figures, recapitulation as against variety, accurate definition as against evocativeness: the former qualities are part of the rigorous code of scientists.

Gluckman, M.*
