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.
