Types of Knowledge

I have argued with my Statistician friends against the validity of a real binary distinction between “Qualitative” and Quantitative” knowledge, but even were I to accept that, ¬†I don’t see Stephen’s idea of Connective Knowledge as a distinct “third type” of knowledge. To me the question of connectivity or not is orthogonal to that of ¬†quantitativity vs qualitativity, and if connective knowledge exists it may well also be quantitative (and/or qualitative).
