This is a light invited commentary on Von Wright's late views on the role of logic in philosophy, which he saw as dwindling. We first go along with, and even go beyond Von Wright's clear criticisms of fossilized practices and views at the interface of logic and philosophy. But then, not surprisingly, we point at a New Dawn of interfaces in a more modern vein. The latter only become visible by looking at the actual history of ideas over the last century, which crosses between disciplines all the time, so that 'one-dimensional projections' into one field, philosophy or logic, only provide only distorted caricatures. The paper will appear in the Swedish journal "Theoria".
