There are two aspects to psychology. One is scientific... and we have a philosophy of science forum already. The other is to do with the philosophy of the mind, which I think probably fits into one of the main forums. So I just think that it's excess baggage, to be honest. But hey, Scott's the big cheese around here, so wait to hear from him.

I also think it's important to remember that there is a big difference between science and the philosophy of science. There is a big difference between psychology and the philosophy of psychology. The philosophy of psychology would be a forum for asking philosophical questions about the process of scientifically studying the psyche.
Philosophy of mind is included with the epistemology and metaphysics section and would refer to those philosophical questions about the mind, which is different than psychology and philosophy of psychology.
