Aristotle on Friendship

Aristotle on Friendship

the fact that they are base, have no stability in friendship: for they do not remain even like themselves for long, much less like each other. They do become friends, but only for a short time, as each rejoices in the other's badness.

Originally published in 1940, this book contains an expanded English translation of Books 8 and 9 of Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics. These two books are devoted to a discussion on the nature of friendship and the role it played in Greek life, and Percival supplies an introduction with a background to the subject of ancient friendship prior to Aristotle's formulation. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in ancient friendship or the philosophy of Aristotle.

Cicero introduces the Roman concept of friendship through a dialogue between Laelius and his two sons-in-law, one of them being Cicero's teacher who later recounted the dialogue to him. Laelius, bereaved by the recent death of his close friend Scipio, describes various aspects of friendship. Cicero has captured the emotions and actualities brilliantly.

Is the preference given to friends rationally and morally justifiable? This collection examines answers given by classic philosophers and offers new answers by contemporary thinkers.
