CLP: Princeton’s Alexander Nehamas on Love and Friendship
Wednesday, January 24, 2018, 5 – 6:30pm
Johns Hall 101
This lecture, entitled “Metaphors in Life: ‘I Love You for Yourself,'” will be part of the Tocqueville Program’s lecture series on “Love, Friendship, and Politics.” In it, one of the nation’s most distinguished philosophers will examine what it means to say that we love our friends. Extending a long tradition of humanistic reflection on the nature of friendship, Nehamas’s reflections are of particular import in our lonely and alienated cultural moment.
Find several of Alexander Nehamas’s books in the James B. Duke Library.
