How relevant is Aristotle's theory of friendship in contemporary, mediated society? Are other philosophies useful?
To begin we'll discuss Aristotle's Philosophy of Friendship as it is traditionally interpreted. In later weeks we'll consider the philosophy and identify additional types of friendship and new characteristics of friendship. We'll refer to Mark Vernon's podcast reviewing Aristotle's notes. I'm also looking for related notes that participants can refer to.
I'm looking for people to help me develop this study group's core content and tasks before we become public. Let me know if you'd like to participate as an admin.
posted message: Hi Everyone,
apologies about the lack of activity in the Philosophy of Friendship group, I've been busy with formal study and work commitments and didn't realise that the group was listed as active and getting so much attention!
It's really great to see so much support from people interested in this topic - unfortunately I can't commit much time to this group until mid October. If you're happy to wait until then we can start actively exploring these ideas together.
If you'd like to totally take over and drive this topic yourself sooner, please let me know! I hope you understand that at the moment I can't make this commitment.
