Summary
The Root of Friendship addresses the connections between self-love and self-governance in the thought of Saint Thomas Aquinas and defends three related theses. First, Aquinas account of proper self-love is a description of the nature and importance of a persons subjective self experience. Second, his notion of self-governance cannot be under- stood fully unless we grasp its basis in self love. Finally, his account both satisfies contemporary conditions of relevance for self-governance and offers attractive solutions to issues raised in analytic discussions on such matters. Accordingly, the book provides a systematic account of Aquinas thoughts on the nature of a persons self-experience and the role that experience plays in self-governance
