|Abstract||Averroes asserts in his Long Commentary on the De Anima and in his Long Commentary on the Metaphysics that principles of the science of metaphysics are established in the science of psychology. In psychology, human intellectual understanding is found to require the separate agent intellect for the coming to be of knowledge.

Moreover there exists potency in those things called intellect, thanks to the argument for the existence of the material intellect|
