.In recent times, it is postulated modern American friendships have lost the force and importance they had in antiquity.^ So that nothing gets lost in the translation, men with this concern will wait for the time in which they can back up their words with a lifetime commitment....John Gray.

C. S. Lewis for example, in his The Four Loves, writes:
.To the Ancients, Friendship seemed the happiest and most fully human of all loves; the crown of life and the school of virtue.^ Love without friendship is life without hope....Unknown.

^ Of all forms of caution, caution in love is perhaps the most fatal to true happiness....Bertrand Russell.

^ The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out LOVE, and to let it come in....Morrie Schwartz.

The modern world, in comparison, ignores it. .We admit of course that besides a wife and family a man needs a few 'friends'. But the very tone of the admission, and the sort of acquaintanceships which those who make it would describe as 'friendships', show clearly that what they are talking about has very little to do with that Philía which Aristotle classified among the virtues or that Amicitia on which Cicero wrote a book.^ The friends make lists which celebrities they would sleep with.

Friendship Analysis

A Friendship Diagram.
Rational Analysis of a Friendship
A Friendship Analysis can be done by diagramming what takes place in a friendship using a flow chart. A Friendship Analysis flow chart first divides friendships into positive or negative influences. The rest of a Friendship Analysis can be explained in terms of the game of friendship. In this game an individual can be classified as either dominant or submissive in the relationship. Each friend has a role to play. Once the roll is determined a plot can be determined for each friend. Once a plot is determined a transaction takes place. .Transactional analysis can be used to study what goes on during this stage of the friendship.^ Twenty-six studies were used in the final meta-analysis.

Love

See also: Marriage
.Love is closely related to friendship in that it involves strong interpersonal ties between two or more people.^ Interpersonal relationships can be defined as the connection between two people, communicative and physical (which includes touch and body language).

In terms of interpersonal relationships, there are two distinct types of love:
.
  1. Platonic love: is a deep and non-romantic connection or friendship between two individuals.^ Contrary to the expectations of the researchers, no connections were found between psychopathology and the age of onset, the difference in age between the victim and the perpetrator and the relationship between the two.

    It is love where the sexual element does not enter.
  2. Romance (love): considered similar to Platonic love, but involves sexual elements.

Non-personal friendships

.Although the term initially described relations between individuals, it is at times used for political purposes to describe relations between states or peoples ("the Franco-German friendship", for example), indicating in this case an affinity or mutuality of purpose between the two nations.^ The review also states that there is no post child abuse syndrome, which would contain a harmful sequelae showing differences between individuals.

Regarding this aspect of international relations, Lord Palmerston said:
Therefore I say that it is a narrow policy to suppose that this country or that is to be marked out as the eternal ally or the perpetual enemy of England. We have no eternal allies, and we have no perpetual enemies. Our interests are eternal and perpetual, and those interests it is our duty to follow.[20]
This is often paraphrased as: "Nations have no permanent friends and no permanent enemies. Only permanent interests."
.The word "friendship" can be used in political speeches as an emotive modifier.^ The Abridged Series , where Tea uses a several-hour-long friendship speech to turn Johny Steps into a zombie.

Interspecies friendship and animal friendship

.Friendship as a type of interpersonal relationship is found also among animals of higher intelligence, such as the higher mammals and some birds.^ Three of the studies found that there was no relationship between the two and two of the studies found some evidence that less trauma was associated with longer duration.

  • Friendship (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy) 9 January 2010 14:48 UTC plato.stanford.edu [Source type: Original source]

Less common but noteworthy are friendships between an animal and another animal of a different species, such as a dog and cat.
