Philosophy: why are we here, what does it all mean?
Psychology: why does the individual do what they do?
Sociology: why do groups of people do what they do?
And the science there of.

Philosophy is original systematic thought in any subject area. Science which uses the scientific method to reach new conclusions is absolutely not philosophy. Philosophy that is not historical philosophy is philosophy that develops new methods. Sociology or psychology that extends standard methods is not philosophy and philosoohy is to those sciences as jazz is to classical music. One is improvised and the other is formal.

Philosophy helps us understand the general and specific relationship we are in reality whereas psychology deals with the individual domain while sociology deals with the social domain of activity within each of us. All three are pretty intermingled in the most complex of ways. Years of study has helped us understand where one begins and the other leaves off etc. etc..

Psychology and sociology are sciences that evolved out of philosophy. They are sciences, hence the OLOGY .

You are not at all mistaken. Difference of opinion will always be there among philosophers, psychologists and sociologists. Only when such wise people discuss, we will come to know the actual REALITY. They discuss the differences in a friendly way in order to help the general public. They want to give us the true essence of philosophic theories.
It is good question presented in a new style.Source(s): own
