What are conceptual and theoretical issues?

    • Thread Starter

    Can anyone give me an example of the conceptual/theoretical issues to an approach? I am unsure how to critically appraise a theory based on these issues opposed to just methodological ones!

    Well an issue in behaviorism is that behaviorists solely observe behavior and therefore omits studying consciousness, cognition, or emotion. Behavior may not be all that is needed to uncover human phenomenon.

    So that would be a conceptual/theoretical issue to an approach.
