Abstract

For Aristotle, friendship is the act of necessary mutual love that constitutes, with its three levels, the cement of "polis", the political community, the "city". It may be studied according to Aristotle's own categories as well as with the matter and form, potency and act theory. This paper, after analyzing what friendship is as an act of love, applies those Aristotelian theories to the comprehension of friendship.
