Resumen

ARAIZA, Jesús. Sobre la amistad según la teoría ética de Aristóteles. Nova tellus [online]. 2005, vol.23, n.2, pp.125-159. ISSN 0185-3058.  http://dx.doi.org/10.19130/iifl.nt.2005.23.2.166.

Among all the fundamental theses in Aristotle’s treatise on friendship (EN, VIII-IX), two particularly important ones deserve very careful study: (a) Aristotle’s thesis on the identity of philía with aretê and (b) his exposition of philautía, in so far as it is considered to be the climax of all his ethical doctrine. The friendship of a single human being with himself and his affection for himself, which, in Aristotle’ view, can be acquired by no other means than purely by ethical virtue, are supposed to be the reason and cause of all friendship and affection towards others. From this it follows, that affection towards oneself -which again presupposes acquisition and practice of ethical virtue- is a conditio sine qua non of friendship and affection towards parents, brothers, kin and, in a more general sense, neighbours and fellow-citizens.

Palabras llave : amigo; amistad; aristóteles; ética; justicia; philautía; virtud.
