Why should we care about history of logic?

That was the talk of the keynote I gave at the Australasian Association for Logic conference in Melbourne a few hours ago. Of course, I naturally care quite a bit about history of logic, but tonight I wanted to spend some time explaining to other people why they too should care (judging from the enthusiastic nods in the audience, I convinced them. Either that, or they just enjoyed all the pictures in my slides).

I’d love to devote a post here to the topic — and intend to do so in the future — but today is not the day as it’s far too late in the evening, Melbourne time, to do it justice, so instead, I’ll link to my slides, for those who’d like to see the pictures: slides for AAL talk.
