  1. Aristotle and the Philosophy of Friendship.Lorraine Smith Pangle - 2002 - Cambridge University Press.
    This book offers a comprehensive account of the major philosophical works on friendship and its relationship to self-love. The book gives central place to Aristotle's searching examination of friendship in the Nicomachean Ethics. Lorraine Pangle argues that the difficulties surrounding this discussion are soon dispelled once one understands the purpose of the Ethics as both a source of practical guidance for life and a profound, theoretical investigation into human nature. The book also provides fresh interpretations of works on friendship by (...)

    Friendship and Human Neediness in Plato’s Lysis.Lorraine Smith Pangle - 2001 - Ancient Philosophy 21 (2):305-323.
  4. De grammatica van de vriendschap.Lorraine Smith Pangle - 2008 - Nexus 50.
    ‘Wij hebben niet de capaciteit verloren om vriendschappen te koesteren, maar alleen de gewoonte ze met de grootste ernst te nemen en er diep over na te denken. Door ons weer vertrouwd te maken met de rijke discussies over vriendschap in de werken van Aristoteles, Cicero, Montaigne en Bacon, die allemaal aan de bakermat stonden van het Europese humanisme, kunnen we misschien beginnen het vocabulaire te hervinden van het denken over wat het betekent een menselijk en sociaal wezen te zijn.’.

  5. Reason and character: the moral foundations of Aristotelian political philosophy.Lorraine Smith Pangle - 2020 - Chicago: University of Chicago Press.
    This book is a fresh examination of Aristotle's teaching on the relation between reason and moral virtue in the Nicomachean Ethics, taking as its point of departure the oft-noted, but still perhaps not sufficiently appreciated fact, that this treatise is the first half of a two-volume work on political science. As such, it lays the foundation for Aristotelian political science and, in significant ways, for the field of political science altogether. The proper aim of the political community according to Aristotle (...)

  6. The Philosophy of Friendship: Aristotle and the Classical Tradition on Friendship and Self-Love.Lorraine Smith Pangle - 1999 - Dissertation, The University of Chicago
    This dissertation explores fundamental ethical questions through an examination of the key classical discussions of friendship: Plato's Lysis, Aristotle's Nicomachean Ethics, Cicero's Laelius, and Montaigne's and Bacon's essays on friendship. ;Should and can people act selflessly for one another's good? Is our concern for friendship and love rooted in neediness or in strength? Is it possible to love another simply for his own sake, or only because of the benefits that we seek for ourselves? Are the best friendships found between (...)

    Virtue is Knowledge: The Moral Foundations of Socratic Political Philosophy.Lorraine Smith Pangle - 2014 - University of Chicago Press.
    The relation between virtue and knowledge is at the heart of the Socratic view of human excellence, but it also points to a central puzzle of the Platonic dialogues: Can Socrates be serious in his claims that human excellence is constituted by one virtue, that vice is merely the result of ignorance, and that the correct response to crime is therefore not punishment but education? Or are these assertions mere rhetorical ploys by a notoriously complex thinker? Lorraine Smith Pangle traces (...)

    The Political Philosophy of Benjamin Franklin.Lorraine Smith Pangle - 2007 - Johns Hopkins University.
    The most famous man of his age, Benjamin Franklin was an individual of many talents and accomplishments. He invented the wood-burning stove and the lightning rod, he wrote Poor Richard's Almanac and The Way to Wealth, and he traveled the world as a diplomat. But it was in politics that Franklin made his greatest impact. Franklin's political writings are full of fascinating reflections on human nature, on the character of good leadership, and on why government is such a messy and (...)
