[OS X TeX] Equation-like environment

I need some help from a LateX Wiz.

I want to create a new equation-like environment, called Argt. It is for 
setting arguments like All men are mortal / Socrates is a Man / 
therefore, Socrates is Mortal. (But of course with the lines on separate 
lines, and all lined up.) I want a counter that increments through a 
chapter, so that the first argument is simply labelled (1), hard up 
against the left margin. The text of course (unlike the equation env) 
should be in plain roman text.

Now I know I should be able to get this from Kopka and Daly but, though 
they cover creating new list environments there is nothing about 
creating a new equation-like environment that is not in math mode. The 
best I've been able to get is a modification of the description 
environment, but with no counter mechanism.

Could anyone point me in the direction of a solution. Any package on 
CTAN that will make this easier?

Thanks for your indulgence
