I disagree. Anecedotal evidence produces the impetus for constructivism.
Your objectivistic approach might work but seems to me to presuppose that
a theoretical framework already exists. Shane's colleague appears to be
proposing a very small scale study based on constructivism that may result
in a theory that later objectivists can prove or modify.
