In this position paper we argue to reduce the ambition for a general theory of software engineering to that of a patchwork of middle-range theories about how artifacts can be used by practitioners. This proposal is placed in the wider context of the role of theory in the engineering sciences. A few suggestions are given for how to proceed along this way.
