Observations 
In the rows, Focus, Methodology, and Cognates, as sharp a distinction as possible is made between the disciplines/programs. In the rows dealing with Examples, the distinctions are blurred as much as possible. For the examples presented here, it should be clear that there are two extremes on ether side of computer science. While computer science is flexible enough to accommodate either extreme, the extremes are not compatible.
