Relations Between Theory and Model in Psychology and Economics

Abstract [en]

This commentary discusses Nurmi's account of the relation of "theories" and "models," and compares it to methodological discussions in economics. I differentiate between two styles of modeling, "theoryfirst" v. "datafirst," and argue that Nurmi's recent work falls in the "theoryfirst" category. This implies that models at any level can function as agents of change that may unidirectionally affect models at other levels.
