I once prodded Kromm on the difference between Occultism and Hidden Lore, suggesting that Occultism is what human researchers have, and HL is what the monsters have, to which he agreed. Your approach seems closest to that.

If you like, they're like the difference between Criminology and Streetwise, perhaps, or Sociology and Savoir-Faire. I don't know what Monster Hunters suggests for the difference though.
