Just about friendship

Frienship, as understood, is a distinctively personal relationship that is grounded in a concern on the part of each friend for the welfare of the other, for the other's sake, and that involves some degree of intimacy. As such, freindship is undoubtedly central to our lives, in part because the special concern we have for our friends much have a place within a broader set of concerns, including moral concerns, and in part because our friends can help shape who we are as persons. So, friendship clearly plays an important role in our lives.
