A woman Aristotelian

Posted: October 20, 2010 by Jender in women are a novelty

I was a graduate student in my first year (ten years ago). At a dinner following a lecture, I was seated across from our guest-lecturer. When he asked what I study, I replied that though it was early, I was interested in Aristotle. He looked up from his dinner and replied, “Huh! A woman Aristotelian! That could work.” I was struck dumb for much of the rest of the meal.
