Acknowledgements Introduction: The Ambiguity of Friendship Friends at Work Friends and Lovers Faking It Unconditional Love Civic Friendship Politics of Friendship The Spirituality of Friendship Conclusion: Philosophy and Friendship Further Reading and References Appendix: Plato and Aristotle on Friendship Index
In this new accessible philosophy of friendship, Mark Vernon links the resources of the philosophical tradition with numerous illustrations from modern culture to ask what friendship is, how it relates to sex, work, politics and spirituality. Unusually, he argues that Plato and Nietzsche, as much as Aristotle and Aelred, should be put centre stage. Their penetrating and occasionally tough insights are invaluable if friendship is to be a full, not merely sentimental, way of life for today.
