Abstract : A conjecture is offered as to how a basic logic, or protologic, might be discovered by examining the 'dynamics' of thought throughout successive stages of inquiry. This assumes that modern symbolic logic is not fundamental. Rather, it is the logic relevant to only one stage of inquiry; albeit an advanced one. (Author)
