Show Summary Details


Because of their eudaimonistic structure, ancient theories have been criticized as egoistic, but this is a mistake, overlooking the place in them of philia or ‘friendship’, covering particular relationships, and of justice; both require other‐concern, the question for ancient ethics being how far this should extend.

Keywords: egoism; eudaimonism; friendship; justice; other‐concern

Chapter.  1832 words.
