Aquinas on Friendship (Oxford Philosophical Monographs) by Daniel Schwartz

By Daniel Schwartz

Daniel Schwartz examines the perspectives on friendship of the good medieval thinker Thomas Aquinas. For Aquinas friendship is the precise form of courting that rational beings should still domesticate. Schwartz argues that Aquinas essentially revises the various major gains of Aristotle's paradigmatic account of friendship with the intention to accommodate the case of friendship among significantly unequal beings: guy and God. hence, Aquinas provides a broader view of friendship
than Aristotle's, making an allowance for a better quantity of confrontation. loss of mutual figuring out, and inequality among friends.
