The methodology to answer the question is pretty clear. Go through some ‘experimental philosophy’, and see if that question could have obtained a grant in the Psychology department.
If the answer is ‘no’, then ‘no’.
If the answer is ‘yes’, then it looks like the disciplines have some overlap.
Is your question a form of experimental philosophy?
Being philosophy basically is the study of the fundamental nature of knowledge, reality & existence while psychology more deals with the study of the human mind and its behaviour, I’d say the two are notably different. For example, a neuroscientist’s course load is roughly half psychology classes as this is the culmination of neurological variations. Whereas philosophy is more related to ideals sculpted through one’s individual experience. I’d expect to see some overlap between the two yet each is not dependent on the other if that makes sense.
