In this study the attempt by Mustafa Şekip Tunç to establish connections between psychology of religion and philosophy of religion has been evaluated in the frame of his discussions on the concepts of religion, psychology and philosophy. For this purpose, initially, his perception of psychology of religion and philosophy of religion has been introduced. Secondly and finally, the way Tunç put forward the relations between these two disciplines were presented with a special emphasis on how these two fields along with the discipline of epistemology can benefit from each other for promotion of the areas in the future.
