The philosophy of psychology is, broadly, the investigation of the philosophical foundations of psychology. It is distinct from other “philosophies of” various sciences, however, in that there also exists a rich tradition of investigation into the mind and its nature within philosophy itself. Thus, the philosophy of psychology is also a systematic study into the interplay between philosophical concerns and psychological concerns in the study of cognition and behavior.
