Roundtable Concepts, Concept Development, and Consumer Research
ABSTRACT - Concepts serve critical functions in science. Indeed, the advancement of human knowledge relies on concepts, both for their descriptive powers and for their role as the building-blocks of theory. Concept development, therefore, plays a similarly critical function in science. Consumer research, however, suffers from a conceptual immaturityC there is a lack of philosophical discussion of concepts in the consumer research literature, and concept development has largely been neglected by consumer researchers. The purpose of this roundtable, therefore, is to provide a forum for consumer researchers to explore concepts and concept development, and their implications for consumer research.
