Theory

A scientific theory is a specific subset of a scientific model. A theory consist of a framework of causally interrelated rational claims that can be described by secondary models, mathematically for instance.

The theoretical framework always is based on axioms, basic claims, that are not and cannot be proved by the theory. There are many theories around that don't explicitly mention their axioms. They exist, however. In those instances, they are mostly taken for granted.
