Practical and academic psychology: Divergence of cognitive structures within professional consciousness

Differences between cognitive structures used in academic (research-oriented) and practical (consultive) psychology are reported. Analysis of corresponding categories reveals divergence in the use and interpretation of basic notions such as space, time, causality, and probability, as well as in accepted forms of generalization, description, in norms of discourse, and in the general concept of man. Necessity of a dialogue between "the two psychologies", is argued; difficulties in the way of implementation of this recommendation are discussed.
