The scientific method is the best example of a non-axiomatic logic I can think of.

I have no idea what a non-axiomatic logic is, but in trying to find out, googling 'non-axiomatic reasoning system' gives better results.

Yeah, that's what I found too: basically work by one person named Pei Wang. I guess one difference between axiomatic and non-axiomatic as described by him is that axiomatic systems assume knowledge provided through premises to be sufficient, while non-axiomatic systems take insufficiency of knowledge as the ground fact, they learn and adapt. A better paper by him that I found (if anybody is interested) is Cognitive Logic versus Mathematical logic.

I only glanced at the pages. It seemed to be something about artificial intelligence. Did you read enough to see if or how it's different from plain ol' inductive reasoning?
