Here is an entry in Wikipedia outlining the decline and fall of categorical logic. There may be some contexts and fields in which it will be revived and rehabilitated.

If we want to develop a symbolic scheme that we can prove propositions from premises that works all the time then stop looking, it's called mathematics. But don't expect it to work perfectly when you apply it to real life because it doesn't. Mathematics is a perfect language in which we can talk about limited things. Other languages are imperfect but we may discuss everything.
