Three Sources and Three Composite Parts of Psychological Knowledge

Abstract

The author distinguishes between three main areas of psychological knowledge: psychological research (psychology as an academic discipline), psychological practice and folk psychology. The author argues against the traditional understanding of scientific psychology being only about research. He claims that, according to the contemporary postclassical science, two other parts also appear legitimate sources of scientific knowledge, which can enrich psychology.
