The principal task of the book series Poznań Studies in the Philosophy of the Sciences and the Humanities is to promote those developments in philosophy that respect the tradition of great philosophical ideas, on the one hand, and the manner of philosophical thinking introduced by analytical philosophy, on the other. One of the standing aims of the series in the past has been to provide a forum of exchange of ideas between philosophers of both sides of the Iron Curtain. The series publishes guest-edited volumes devoted to the philosophy of the natural sciences, the social sciences and the humanities as well as to foundational topics in metaphysics, epistemology and social philosophy.

Poznań Studies in the Philosophy of the Sciences and the Humanities is partly sponsored by the Institute of Philosophy of the University of Warsaw.

Abstract

Following from Kmita's concept of science and his distinction between two types of practice - that is social practice and research practice - the author analyses the relationships obtaining between psychology as science (in Kmita's terms) on the one hand and, on the other hand, social practice building on the research results obtained by psychologists. The author cites the critique of the methodological model employed by the so-called practical sciences and refers it to the common belief entertained by psychologists that there is a need to make a distinction between two varieties of psychology - the academic variety, enjoying the methodological status of a fundamental science (on the model of physics), and the applied variety, awarded the methodological status of a practical science (on the model of pedagogy). The author's main argument is that it is only reasonable to speak of one psychology with many applications. The article is concluded by a presentation of the pattern of information flow between the domains of social practice and research practice.
