Theory pertains to a set of ideas or principles that aim to explain a specific phenomenon. The ideas and principles must not be subjective; rather, it’s supposed to be objective derived from thorough research and experiments. Since it’s nature is theory, it can change and dependent on the approach.

Note that it’s different from law. Law may not be changed because it has been proven by many theories.

Sample of theories: Theory of evolution (coming from a set of idea from the proponent but not necessarily true)

Hope this helps!
