The author divides suicide into 3 categories: logical, psychological, & catalogical. Logical suicide is completed by those who are experiencing physical pain, while psychological suicide is characterized by delusions & psychosis. The focus, though, is on catalogical suicide, which the author defines as errors in semantic & dichmotomous thinking. The article concludes with sections on the ecology & folklore of suicide. (VM)
