Thanks.  I actually saw that categorization.  My impression was that it
tends to work at cross purposes from our goal AIUI.  Some of these
categories don't lend themselves to any sort of formalization or
standardization.  Also mathematical and scientific reasoning, while
philosophically distinct, strike me as the same type of argument.
