We will point out the purposes these theories served and the reasons why they were replaced or ignored by later scholars. In some cases, theories were rejected when they couldn’t be validated by scientific research or supported by logical arguments.

Occasionally, proponents gave up trying to find evidence to support them or they became irrelevant as media or society […]
