A seminar or not a seminar, this is the question

A few days ago I was browsing the most important database for mathematicians, Mathscinet, and I found a really interesting paper by J. Mawhin and M. Willem. Its title is Origin and evolution of the Palais-Smale condition in critical point theory. While traveling home, I could read almost all of it, and I was so amused that I decided to prepare a rather informal talk for PhD students.

Therefore, I stated writing slides, but I suddenly stopped: is this really interesting for students? I mean, they do not know what the Palais-Smale condition is, why should they be interested in its evolution? Even worse, why should they be interested in mathematics at all? Alright, this is too much...
