    What is the difference between idea and concept?

    Disclaimer: I am not an expert...in anything. If we think of the auto industry, a concept car is a solid tangible model of what they would like to produce...but it usually undergoes many cuts and revamps before hitting the production line. So, I imagine that an idea is something in your head or maybe a rough draft on paper. Whereas, a concept is an idea that is beginning to take tangible form...I suppose I could have just gone to Dictioanry.com but that's no fun.

    In my speculation, I imagine that an idea is a fully formed concept. You could draw out your idea, plan it, set goals for it and so on. With a concept, you might only have a limited notion as to the details of your thought.

    An idea is a thought a notion. A concept is a contstructed field of thought  that may or may not be based on a field of knowlege.
