  • It remains unclear as to just what a `theoretical psychology' might be or might claim as a mission. This is distinct from various and ad hoc psychological theories (e.g. Hullian learning theory, the opponent-process theory of color vision) which admit at least in principle of empirical tests of adequacy. The example of theoretical physics is offered heuristically to test the different senses of `theoretical psychology'.
