CHOICE Review

This edited volume offers a well-planned topical introduction to the philosophical investigation of the nature of friendship, considered as a human virtue. Rather than serving as an introduction to historical views, it integrates historical perspectives through the lens of contemporary commentaries on a variety of philosophically intriguing, and potentially troubling, aspects of friendship. In 14 essays, various reputable scholars contribute perspectives, frequently contrasting, on topics ranging from the relationship between friendship and human well-being to the impact of friendship on rationality. In every case, the articles are accessible to a wide audience and generally excel at presenting the material at a level appropriate to an early introduction, though still provocative for more advanced scholars. Recent publications reflect a growing interest in the nature and value of friendship for human well-being. This book stands out by endeavoring to connect and self-consciously explore the concept of friendship through its connections with other important features of people's lives. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-level undergraduates through researchers/faculty; general readers. A. L. Morton Saint Xavier University
