  • Love For A Soulless Thing Is Not Love Analysis

    Book 8, Section 2 – “Love for a soulless thing is not called friendship, since there is no mutual loving, and you do not wish good to it. For it would presumably be ridiculous to wish good things to wine; the most you wish is its preservation so that you can have it. To a friend, however, it is said, you must wish goods for his own sake” (Aristotle, 426). Premise 1: Friendship requires mutual loving. Premise 2: Soulless things do not love. Premise 3: Friendship requires reciprocated wishing of good to the friend for the friend’s own sake. Premise 4: Any good wished towards a soulless thing is not for its own sake. Premise 5: Soulless things cannot wish good towards an individual, nor reciprocate goodwill. Premise 6: Friendship requires that both be aware of the reciprocation of goodwill. Premise 7: Soulless things cannot be aware of reciprocation of goodwill. Conclusion: Love for a soulless thing is not friendship. An issue that arises with this argument lies in Premise 4 and 5 - that an individual does not wish good things toward a thing for the thing’s own sake and that soulless things cannot wish good towards an individual.

This is true regardless of what thing an action is done towards - be it a person, oneself or an inanimate thing. For this argument, I will obviously use the example of an inanimate thing. Each human usually has at least one skill or talent to which…
