sure I've heard of BDI in the domain of computer science, but how to fit BDI
in a proof-scenario in 'pure' mathematics, even though there is nothing
supreme in pure mathematics compared to computable things. Imagine you have
the axioms, the rules of inference, the theorem to be proved, and also the
proof. Now, it would be absolutely great to be able to understand the steps
of the proof, the intention of the mathematician, the reason why this and
that step was taken at this and that point. It is hard to see just how BDI
is used here, to make the inference clear and easily understandable.    (03)
