I would like to thank John Clement and Fred Byron for many helpful suggestions concerning earlier drafts of this paper. Discussions with Bob Gray have helped me clarify several issues concerning the nature of formal reasoning. Finally I would like to acknowledge my indebtedness to George and Joe, for all they have taught me.
