Professional psychology achieved great and sudden exposure in Western societies. This situation left little room for a careful reflection concerning the discipline and its methods. This resulted in a state of poor theoretical development which could be detrimental to the transformative power of the discipline, leaving important philosophical problems unsolved. The paper addresses some primary philosophical issues concerning psychology as a practical discipline; in addition, the outcomes of an exploratory study of reports produced by a sample of psychologists are presented. The study adopts a bottom-up approach, where data provided by practitioners are potentially useful for theoretical reflection on the status of psychology as it is practiced. Two dimensions emerged: one concerning different conceptions dealing with psychology’s users, the other concerning different assumptions about the disciplinary status of psychology. Empirical outcomes are compared to the philosophical analysis and relevant implications for the status of psychology as a practical discipline are discussed.
