Słowa kluczowe:

common sense psychology, practical psychology, academic psychology


The aim of the present article is to consider different aspects of three types of psychology which affect the life of the contemporary society. The first one is practical psychology, the second is common sense psychology, and the third one is academic psychology. The central question to be answered is about a utility of each psychology. In fact, it was found that the relationships between three types of psychology are complex, and these interrelations can’t lead to constructive effects. In other words, it seems that chronic and acute division between academic and practical psychology is a consequence of interaction between this three types of psychology. Thus, common sense psychology appeared to eliminate other two types of psychology from social and scientific discourse.
