Yes, mathematicians. But I don't need to be reminded what a good
mathematician or a good professional would do, and, by the way, I am only
marginally interested in history, my focus is purely theoretical. That
said, the point in question was how could there be a privileged starting
point when we are talking about a system whose *essential* nature is the
self-referentiality / the circularity.

There, the point in question was: how could you (or anybody) justify calling
that "logic"?

Indeed.

I respect your approach, it's just not mine: I am an ever student, but not
any more than anybody else is.

By the way, that link does not work for me, this one does:
