12 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and Slovenian and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a lively philosophical introduction to, and exploration of, the nature and value of personal relationships. LaFollette argues that a careful examination of friendship, love and kinship illuminates and is illuminated by philosophical discussions of the self, the emotions, and reason. He also explores a variety of questions about the conduct of our relationships: honesty, jealousy, commitment, sex, and equality. By relating practical concerns about personal relationships to more theoretical philosophical issues, the book provides the ideal basis for introductory philosophy and ethics courses, as well as for specialized upper division courses on personal relationships
