Question description

  • Define what a theory is. What is the goal of a theory? What are the components of a theory? Using one of the theories presented in the textbook, identify two of the components and describe the relationship between them. Note: Do not use the same components as one of your classmates has used in a previous post.
  • Describe how you can know if a theory is valid. What is evidence or data? Where does evidence/data come from? What role does evidence/data play in understanding a theory? Using one of the theories presented in the textbook, describe what sort of data might be useful in testing this theory. How might you collect this data? Note: Do not describe the same sources of data as one of your classmates has done in a previous post.
  • Contrast a theory from a personal belief. What are the practical uses for a theory, and what are the practical uses for beliefs? Which is more likely to represent a bias, a theory or a belief? Using one of the theories presented in the textbook, explain how the theory differs from personal beliefs. Offer examples of personal beliefs that contrast with the components of the theory.
