Human Nature in Causal Explanation/Mill: (J. St. Mill, A System of Logic, Book VI, Chapter iii, Section. 2):.... it can be said that the science of human nature is present to the extent that the existing truths which form the practical knowledge of human nature can be represented as corollaries from the universally general laws of human nature on which they are based.
