By A. W. Price
Reissued in 1997 with corrections and a brand new Afterword, this ebook totally explores for the 1st time an idea universal to Plato and Aristotle, which unites their treatments-- in a different way very different--of love and friendship. the belief is that even though individuals are separate, their lives needn't be. One person's lifestyles may well overflow into another's, and as such, supporting someone else is a fashion of serving oneself. the writer indicates how their view of affection and friendship, inside of not just own relationships, but in addition the loved ones or even the city-state, offers to solve the previous dichotomy among egoism and altruism.
