I like this. Yes.What you're saying is "The plural of anecdote is not data."
But isn't it the same thing? If art, song and anecdote all talk about dragons consistently, does that make them any more real? The disciplines feed and nourish each other.I'm talking about something else entirely, the notion of disparate disciplines, say, sociology, physics, and art all overlapping in their view of something. I can't even think of a good example of this. That leads me to suppose if there were a good example it would be a significant indicator of authentic insight.
(OK, bad example. I should work a science in there.)
