This volume is a lively introduction to and exploration of the nature and value of personal relationships.LaFollette argues that a careful examination of friendship, love and kinship illuminates and is illuminated by philosophical discussions of the self, the emotions, and reason. He also explores a variety of questions about the conduct of our relationships: honesty, jealousy, commitment, sex, and equality. This book is primarily a contribution to the growing philosophical literature on personal relationships. However, by relating practical concerns about personal relationships to more theoretical philosophical issues, the volume provides the ideal basis for introductory philosophy and ethics courses, as well as specialized upper division courses on personal relationships.
