This chapter discusses the questions of theory largely in isolation from institutional matrices and situations. The discussion focuses primarily on British activities to the exclusion of the American ones that accompanied or preceded them. It can be noted that the word ‘theory’ has always raised suspicion among the English, who see themselves as practical people and sound empiricists.

Keywords:   theory, institutional matrices, British activities, English
