This lecture discusses key ideas from the ancient philosopher Aristotle's work of moral theory, the Nicomachean Ethics. Specifically it focuses on his discussion in book 8 about the type of friendship (philia, in Greek), that is based upon pleasure (to hedon) - either pleasure derived from the other person in some way, or pleasure that is shared in by the members of the friendship.
