They range from hunches based on minimum data to laws which reflect a very high degree of factual verification. 3. Elaboration of logical implications of hypotheses. This includes deducing observations which have already been made —so that hypotheses may be checked against present knowledge; and deducing observations which have not yet been made—so that hypotheses may be tested through experiments yet to be designed.

We list some of the more important of these rules together with some needed qualifications. 1. Whenever one insight or conclusion is accepted in preference to another, it is presumed that reasons exist for its acceptance.
