So, the first time that a student said this to my face was some time ago, but it wasn't the last time and I suspect many more students think this than actually share. The essence of the comment was
I don't care what Aristotle has to say about anything. I don't want to understand Aristotle. There is nothing Aristotle could say that could possibly change my mind about anything. I can't think of any good reason to become familiar with anything he had to say
Now, of course, this is heresy to me, the philosopher, but I suppose I get that some people may not find Aristotle simply self-evidently interesting. But, I'm curious, how would you helpfully respond to such a student?
