Towards Comprehensiveness in Theory Construction in Second Language Acquisition: A Critical Look

Nima Shakouri, Shahriar Sarvari


Sparse unequivocal evidence among Second Language Acquisition (SLA) scholars boosts incomprehensiveness in theory construction. Individualism in theory construction is at the expense of excluding other perspectives and adopting a particular ideology from a parent discipline without referring to other perspectives. The purpose of the present paper is to achieve comprehensiveness in theory construction through a biological look. In a sense, the current work, although valuing the nurture-based attempts in SLA, holds that the orientation towards nature-based ideology will boost compatibility among a variety of points of view. Besides, to achieve comprehensiveness in research findings, attempts should be made to provide a link between hard and soft sciences.
