  • No, not always.

    Psychological theory should not determine public policy in every instance. Sometimes a theory is just a theory and can not be taken too seriously until given more evidence and hard facts. It could end up giving us some strange laws and rules to listen to if we followed every theory.

  • No, psychological theory should not determine public policy.

    No, psychological theory should not determine public policy. Psychology is a 'soft science' with many varying factors. It simply cannot be applied broadly, therefore it cannot serve as a basis for legislation. Some - and perhaps many - people do not fall into the neat little categories set out by psychological theory. The implications for unfair treatment under this premise are too great.
