Title Aristotle on making other selves
Date 1987
Description There is still a relative paucity of discussion of the views on friendship that Aristotle presents in the Nicomachean Ethics, although some recent work may indicate a new trend. One suspects that this paucity reflects a belief that those views are not very interesting; if true, this witnesses to an unfortunate underestimation of Aristotle's account. This account is in fact quite surprising, for - I shall argue - Aristotle believes that one makes one's friends in the most literal sense of the verb.
