Pretty good stuff. I don't like the silly 'ableism' talk, but apart from that Frey makes some crucial points. There are at least two things that are going on here, one of which becomes obvious in the last couple of paragraphs, but the other of which is all subtext. That latter thing is that there is of course pressure to cancel Aristotle due to his sexism, ableism and so on. And Frey clarifies some of the relevant material there (not on sex, though even there, someone who knows Aristotle can see the connections) in order to defend the study of Aristotle despite his flaws.
