I searched on google and many dictionary website but I found that the word "Theory" only goes with preposition "of". Can you tell me why it goes with "on" in that book please!
Thank you so much for your help! Wish you have a good day!

@ng thuy: after "of" would be a noun or noun pharse. Therefore, there is not always the case that "theory" goes with "of". Correct me if im wrong

@Justin: Dear Justin. I have posted my question on some websites looking for help and one said "theory" goes with "of" is the most common way. Sometimes people use "on" but it's rare. He said I can use both and nothing wrong with "of" or "on". But "of" is the standard preposition. Maybe it's just that simple but I'm still looking for other answers and hope Simon will help.
Thank you so much for your reply!
