Foundations of Physics 18 (8):777-808 (1988)

A method originally conceived by Bohm for abstracting key features of the metric geometry from an underlying spinor ordering is generalized to the projective geometry. This allows the introduction of the spinor into a projective context and the definition of an associated geometric algebra. The projective spinor may then be regarded as defining a pregeometry for the projective space
