difficulty of the subject

By subject, it looks like they are referring to the subject of "psychology."

difficulty of the subject matter

After thinking it over many times and trying to understand 'objeto de estudio' ... this is what I think it means. This is along the same lines as what Dr. Jason is suggesting, but I think 'subject matter' may be a clearer way of saying it. (I had my 'curso de psicología general' back in 1969!). Saludos :)

Example sentence(s):
  • "The Subject Matter of Psychology BY GUSTAV BERGMANN I. INTRODUCTION "
  • "But the subject matter of psychology (and the other human sciences) is harder to pin down."
