This article proposes a qualitative analysis of a
dialogue between two children solving the Tower of Hanoi problem. We know that
in some circumstances, two heads are better than one. The question is how
interactional constraints are likely to provide cognitive benefits? To carry out
such an analysis, we use Interlocutory Logic, which is a formal system
constructed to express the logical and phenomenological properties of natural
conversation. More particularly, we showed how this logical analysis of the
interlocution can formalise the socio-cognitive conflict that appears to be an
essential ''ingredient'' of cognitive development from the socio-constructivist
