The meaning and importance of friendship have become questions of increasing interest in recent years, as declining rates of marriage and parenthood have made the family less central and friends more so in the lives of many people, particularly in the western world. Yet the history of friendship, and the ways in which it has changed its form and its meaning over time has only just begun to be discussed. Both historically and in the contemporary world, the language of friendship has not been confined to personal relationships. It is significant also in discussions or descriptions of a range of different ethical systems, social institutions and political alliances.The term 'friend' and others derived from it, such as 'mate' or 'comrade' have played an important role in establishing and characterizing particular religious organization, national cultures and political movements. The concept of friendship has been an important one in western philosophy too. Indeed, for many philosophers, from Plato and Aristotle to G.E. Moore, friendship, or terms connected to friendship are crucial to the establishment of society and to the meaning of the good life. As Jacques Derrida has argued recently, in relation to his book "The Politics of Friendship, " while 'friendship ...is marginal in the usual taxonomies of political concepts, as soon as you read the canonical texts in political theory starting with Plato or Aristotle you discover that friendship plays an organising role in the definition of justice, of democracy even.This volume aims to combine an analysis of the major classical philosophical texts of friendship and their continuing importance over many centuries with a broader discussion of the changing ways in which friendship was understood and experienced in Europe from the Hellenic period to the present. It is the result of a collaborative research project that has involved philosophers and historians with special research interests in Classical Greek philosophy and in the history of medieval and renaissance, 18th century 19th and 20th century Europe.

  • Friendshipe in Aristotle's political theory, Richard Mulgan-- Hume, Smith and Ferguson - friendship in commercial society, Lisa Hill and Peter McCarhty-- circles, ladders and stars - Nietzsche on friendship, Ruth Abbey-- Martin Buber and the ontological crisis of modern man, Charles Rusgin-- Derrida and friendship, Fred Dallmayr-- the virtue of solitude and the vicissitudes of friendship, Horst Hutter-- reviving greco-Roman friendship - a biographical review, Heather Devere.
  • (source: Nielsen Book Data)
In antiquity, it was not only Aristotle who assumed the people are more to be understood in relation to one another than as individual or solitary constructs. Friendship was vital to figures such as Aristotle, Plato and Socrates, because it supplied the type of bonding or fellowship without which they supposed no society could survive - a person unfit for communal life, for Aristotle, must be either a beast or a god. This examination considers the changing attitudes to friendship since antiquity and notes that almost no major modern philosopher has expounded friendship as an ideal for society.

  • Introduction-- 1. Archaic Greece-- 2. The classical city-- 3. The Hellenistic world-- 4. Rome-- 5. Christian and pagan-- Bibliography-- Index.
  • (source: Nielsen Book Data)
This book - the only history of friendship in classical antiquity that exists in English - examines the nature of friendship in Greece and Rome from Homer to the Christian Roman Empire of the fourth century AD. Friendship is conceived of as a voluntary and loving relationship, but there are major shifts in emphasis from the bonding among warriors in epic poetry, to the egalitarian ties characteristic of the Athenian democracy, the status-conscious connections in Rome and the Hellenistic kingdoms, and the commitment to a universal love among Christian writers. Friendship is also examined in relation to erotic love and comradeship, for its role in politics and economic life, in philosophical and religious communities, in connection with patronage and the private counsellors of kings, and in respect to women. Its relation to modern friendship is also fully discussed.

  • Friendship and desire in the "Lysis"-- love in the "Symposium"-- love in the "Phaedrus"-- perfect friendship in Aristotle-- Aristotle on the varieties of friendship-- the household-- the city. Appendices: 1 - homogeneity and beauty in the "Symposium"-- 2 - psychoanalysis looks at the "Phaedrus"-- 3 - Plato's sexual morality-- 4 - Aristotle on erotic love.
  • (source: Nielsen Book Data)
Though persons are separate, their lives need not be. One person's life may overflow into another's, so that, according to Price, helping the other person is a way of helping oneself. Price suggests that this idea is present in the accounts of love and friendship given by both Plato and Aristotle. He also argues that their views on love and friendship in personal relationships, the household and the city-state can resolve the old dichotomy between altruism and egoism.

Reissued in 1997 with corrections and a new Afterword, this book fully explores for the first time an idea common to Plato and Aristotle, which unites their treatments - otherwise very different - of love and friendship. The idea is that although persons are separate, their lives need not be. One person's life may overflow into another's, and as such, helping another person is a way of serving oneself. The author shows how their view of love and friendship, within not only personal relationships, but also the household and even the city-state, promises to resolve the old dichotomy between egoism and altruism.

  • Foundations of Christian friendship-- studies of friendship and friendship networks in the early and central middle ages-- transformation and discontinuities.
  • (source: Nielsen Book Data)
Friendship in the Middle Ages carried a meaning far removed from the modern concept of a development of personal sympathies between individuals. It was cultivated formally and implied obligations and bonds of mutual support. In a society where, for example, party politics did not exist, friendship had a clear role in the formation of social networks and political organization. This volume brings together the work of scholars who have pioneered the study of friendship and friendship networks and demonstrates the role of friendship as a social institution with a direct impact on social and political life, and therefore offers another approach to understanding the social and political circumstances of medieval Europe.
