9780268009748: Friendship and the Moral Life

Friendship and the Moral Life is not simply a theoretical argument about how moral theology might be done if it took friendship more seriously. Rather, the book exhibits how without friendship, our lives are morally not worth living. The book begins with a consideration of why a new model of the moral life is needed. Wadell then examines the ethics of Aristotle, who viewed the moral life as based on a specific understanding of the purpose of being human, with friendship being an important factor in enabling people to acquire virtues necessary for achieving this purpose. Through the thought of Augustine, Aelred of Reivaulx, and Karl Barth, the question is raised whether friendship is at odds with Christian love or whether their relation depends on one's narrative account of friendship. Thomas Aquinas' understanding of charity as friendship with God is examined to clarify this relationship. 
 
By locating friendship within the story of God's redemption through Christ, Wadell helps us see why friendship properly understood is integral to the Christian life and not at odds with it. Such a friendship draws us to love all others who seek God and teaches us not to restrict our concern to a special few in preferential love. The book closes by investigating how friendship as a model for the moral life might work in everyday life.

About the Author:

Paul J. Wadell, C.P., is professor of religious studies at St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wisconsin.

Review:

"This book offers both a substantive discussion of friendship in the Christian life and an approach to method in Christian ethics. A clear and helpful addition to the literature on friendship and deserves attention." (Religious Studies Review)

“Recommended to the general reader. [Wadell] takes as a model for the moral life the common and universal experience of friendship and introduces his project in an engaging, personal, and anecdotal style.” (America)

"Wadell has made a convincing case for the necessity of rediscovering Aristotelian and Christian moral principles, particularly those concerning friendship. He demonstrates, with the seasoning of deep personal insight, that seeing friendship with God as the end of the moral life, and friendship with others as indispensable to achieving that goal, is crucial for achieving a full understanding of the moral life." (Review of Metaphysics)

Descrizione libro University of Notre Dame Press February 1991, 1991. Paper Back. Condizione libro: New. An eloquent argument for the centrality -- not just importance -- of friendship in human life, moral life, and Christian life. Wadell's reading of the Nichomachean Ethics highlights friendship as the key to understanding Aristotle's rich vision of eudaimonia, the good life; and his subsequent investigations in the Christian tradition lead him to expound friendship as a ''school of love,'' entirely consistent with agape, and to refute the arguments of theologians such as Nygren and Kierkegaard that friendship's preferential nature places it outside the realm of distinctly Christian love. On the contrary (and here setting forth Augustine), friendship between human beings, though like all things mortal insufficient in itself, can become an icon -- if divine things are placed at its center -- an icon of a relationship with God in which we are called His friends and dare to call Him friend.
