This collection contains a spectacular array of short works and excerpts on the question of friendship all in one place. From reading this, it is easy to watch the progression of ideas in the Great Conversation, as each other responds and refines the ideas of the last. This text is invaluable to me for directing my students toward further reading on the topic of friendship after they finish reading Aristotle in class and still hunger for more answers.

I read this book in conjunction with a Shakespeare course of the tenets of friendship. The philosophers highlighted offer eccentric theories, some of which are applicable even today, and others which are a lot more farfetched. I personally enjoyed reading the selections from Aristole's, "Nicomachean Ethics" and Montaigne's "On Friendship."

Here in this book are collected some of the most significant essays and dialogues on the nature of friendship ever written. The book spans a vast period of time and so multiple historical and cultural contexts (though Western). One can't read this without seeing how discourse on friendship can open up the nature of our relationships to worthwhile reflection!

I had to buy it for a class I had to take. That pretty much wraps up what I felt about the book.
