The Value of Friendship

2010-08-17

My friend Dizzy just pointed me to a fine essay by Daniel Akst on friendship (or the lack thereof) in modern society. It's no surprise that I would enjoy the essay, given that I'm a big fan of both Aristotle and Epicurus, that I have written two essays on friendship, and that I have re-published essays on the topic by Emerson, Montaigne, and Randolph Bourne over at monadnock.net. Good reading!
