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.
