In this essay, I discuss what can be the underlying principle to the philosophy of cognitive science that
is useful for us to understand human nature. Reviewing the principles of science as already presented by Noam
Chomsky, I expand the discussion by briefly discussing the computational aspect of the human mind, the key I
argued, to unify the mental and physical aspects of the human brain/mind. The discussion led to Aristotelian
psychology (or epistemology) as the suggestion for a way forward in the understanding of the nature of human
mind from the mysteriousness of its nature as understood by the rationalists started by René Descartes.
