Aristotle and Kant on self-disclosure in friendship

Journal of Value Inquiry 38 (2):225-239 (2004)
Abstract
Both Aristotle and Kant note that the highest form of friendship enables individuals of good virtue to reveal themselves to one another. I argue that Aristotle and Kant emphasize complementary aspects of self-disclosure in friendship: whereas Kant acknowledges the inherent value of self-disclosure in friendship, Aristotle suggests that joint perception in friendship is instrumentally valuable in the acquisition of self-knowledge. I also argue that although Aristotle has a more developed account of friendship, Kant advances a superior account of self-disclosure in friendship in his later remarks on friendship in the Metaphysical Principles of Virtue
