PHI HIGH NYCIntelligent Discussions for Phi-Curious High School Students
Aristotle in Athens Square Park
The Importance of Friendship
For most of us, a life without our friends would be a sad and lonely existence. Our friends bring us joy, they share in our successes and they comfort us in our troubles. Friendship would seem to be an essential feature of a fulfilling life. And being essential to a fulfilling life makes it a perfect topic for philosophical reflection. That is why Aristotle, in his Nicomachean Ethics, a book on the nature of a good human life, includes an in-depth discussion of the meaning and importance of friendship. And that is why our next Phi-High event will be a conversation on friendship where we will bring together Aristotle’s reflections and the lessons we have learned from our own friendships.
So please join us. Admission is free, but the discussion will be rich! And bring a friend!
