Review: "This is the first comprehensive study of the major philosophical works on friendship. The book gives central place to Aristotle's searching examination of friendship and self-love in the Nicomachean Ethics. Lorraine Smith Pangle argues that the difficulties in this discussion that have long puzzled scholars can be resolved once one understands the complexity of purpose of the Ethics as both a source of practical guidance for life and a profound, unsettling theoretical investigation into human nature."--Jacket.
