About the Author:

Suzanne Stern-Gillet is Professor of Philosophy at the Bolton Institute of Higher Education, England.

Review:

Professor Stern-Gillet has taken on the task of explaining how, in Aristotelian terms, a friend can be another self. Using careful philological and philosophical analysis, she shows that the very concept of a self develops only in the context of determining what (or who) is the other; her analysis reveals that, contrary to standard dogma, Aristotle s ethical theory is not egoistic in character, and that the account of friendship is essential for an understanding not only of the Aristotelian virtues but also of the vexed question of the theoretical life. Anthony Preus
Suzanne Stern-Gillet addresses major and long-standing problems in Aristotle s treatment of friendship and suggests a plausible way of reconciling them. The connections she makes between Nicomachean Ethics and DeAnima, as well as her contrasts with Homer, Plato, and Descartes are illuminating. She takes an important Aristotelian teaching, goes through the major problems, and comes up with a consistent and coherent account of how it fits together. Aristide Tessitore
