This book fully explores for the first time an idea common to Plato and Aristotle, which unites their treatments - otherwise very different - of love and friendship. The idea is that although persons are separate, their lives need not be. One person's life may overflow into another's, and as such, helping another person is a way of serving oneself.   Plato and Aristotle both give an important place to friendship in the good life: Plato devotes the major part of three books (the Lysis, Phaedrus, and Symposium) to friendship and to love.

Love and friendship differ from the virtues in being relationships: the other person enters in not just as an object that receives the good activity, but also as an intrinsic part of love itself. Political attachment, likewise, consists in a relationship to a structured social context. Therefore, these components of the good life are minimally self-sufficient, vulnerable in an especially deep. 1 In all friendships between dissimilars it is, as we have said, proportion that equalizes the parties and preserves the friendship; e.g. in the political form of friendship the shoemaker gets a return for his shoes in proportion to his worth, and the weaver and all other craftsmen do the same. Now here a common measure has been provided in the form of money, and therefore everything is.

Aristotle on Friendship. In the Nicomachean Ethics, Aristotle describes friendship as reciprocated goodwill. But it is the source of that goodwill that differentiates perfect friendship from two imperfect forms of friendship.
