In this chapter, we discuss what we consider to be the principal theoretical approaches that have influenced and informed the concept of ‘personalization’. In addition to reviewing the main conceptual foundations, we lend critical attention to the challenge of building a robust ‘theory’ to support the development of this notion by emphasizing selected theoretical elements, which we feel have particular potential for this task.
