You have made a solid case.  Logicism lives.

Who's arguing?  When did I say it was dead?

I  said it had been unable to achieve its original goals.
That's not saying it's dead.

I proposed and advocated a different kind of philosophy,
based on mathematical practise as it really is, not as
it's supposed to be.

That's proposing a competitor to logicism.  It's not
saying logicism is dead.

We agree.  Logicism lives.
