The Birds and the Bees of Theories

I just had a thought today while I was working in the Testing Center, of all places to have thoughts just pop into your head.  Are the theories that we have all been taught in the past, like Behaviorism, Constructivism, Progressivism, and any other isms, been constructed by pieces of previous theories?  For the individuals who have constructed theories used today, didn’t they have to look at the theories of the present them, run them through a centrifuge of educational sorts, and determine what would in the birth of their own theory?  Wouldn’t there have to be some reference to refer to with their own thinking?  Where do theories come from?
