Essays in Ethics: the Aesthetic, the Metaphysical, and the Interpretive
"...what people ordinarily call ‘true friendship’, where we are to understand friendship neither for pleasure alone nor for advantage alone, may be helpfully parsed with Plato’s dramatic representations of the close friendship between Alcibiades and Socrates. That is, true friendship is a mutual and sustained bond of affection between persons that is habitually responsive to a general, objective realm of ethical values. This realm of values regulates the moral valence of the important acts and actions that continue to cinstitute that close friendship.” Peter McCormick
