There's a terrific paper by Al Cuoco, Paul Goldenberg, and June Marks called Habits of Mind: An Organizing Principle for the Mathematics Curriculum, which deals with the differences between algebra and geometry. Of course there are other parts of mathematics with distinctive patterns of mind  probability and statistics, combinatorics, etc.  and not everyone will agree with everything they say, but it's a good place to start.
I don't believe it's appeared anywhere, but if you're interested you could write to them at EDC.
