Fundamental concepts of Industrial Psychology. The aim of the article is to identify the fundamental (or key) concepts of Industrial Psychology and to determine their interrelationship. In the first instance the role of fundamental concepts in the practice of science is indicated. Hereafter the following fundamental concepts are identified for Industrial Psychology, viz. "science", "man", "work" and "psychic". The fundamental concept "science" plays a initiating and regulative role with respect to the other fundamental concepts. The fundamental concepts "work" and "man" together indicate the field of study and the fundamental concept "psychic" the focus point of Industrial Psychology as a discipline.

Die grondbegrippe van die Bedryfsielkunde. Die doel van die artikel is om die grondbegrippe van die Bedryfsielkunde te identifiseer en hul onderlinge verhouding te bepaal. Die rol van grondbegrippe in wetenskapsbeoefening word ter aanvang eers bespreek. Hiema word die volgende grondbegrippe vir die Bedryfsielkunde geidentifiseer, te wete "wetenskap", "mens", "arbeid" en "psigiese". Die grondbegrip "wetenskap" tree inisierend en regulatief ten opsigte van die ander grondbegrippe op. Die grondbegrippe "arbeid" en "mens" vorm gesamentlik die studieveld en die grondbegrip "psigiese" die kenobjek van die Bedryfsielkunde.
