Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Practical Friendship brings insights together from ancient and contemporary philosophy, theology, psychology and sociology to identify what good friendship means and how we can live it. Based on the analysis it proposes we adopt a role based view of friendship, that also can be used to analyse loneliness. Based on research and anecdotal evidence the book compiles a range of recommendations on how to maintain our friendships in good repair and how to foster friendship in old age. The book addresses an audience of professionals working to fight loneliness in our society as well as lay people wanting to reflect on how to improve the friendships in their lives. Additional sections are addressed at researchers in sociology and psychology who want to expand their understanding of friendship in order to tune their research to generate insight for loneliness-support.

Download or read book Friendship written by Lydia Denworth and published by Bloomsbury Publishing. This book was released on 2020-03-19 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The phenomenon of friendship is universal. Friends, after all, are the family we choose. But what makes these bonds not just pleasant but essential, and how do they affect our bodies and our minds? In Friendship, science journalist Lydia Denworth takes us in search of the biological, psychological, and evolutionary foundations of this important bond. She finds that the human capacity for friendship is as old as humanity itself, when tribes of people on the African savanna grew large enough for individuals to seek meaningful connection with those outside their immediate families. Lydia meets scientists at the frontiers of brain and genetics research, and discovers that friendship is reflected in our brain waves, our genomes, and our cardiovascular and immune systems; its opposite, loneliness, can kill. With insight and warmth, Lydia weaves past and present, biology and neuroscience, to show how our bodies and minds are designed for friendship, and how this is changing in the age of social media. Blending compelling science, storytelling, and a grand evolutionary perspective, she delineates the essential role that cooperation and companionship play in creating human (and non-human) societies. Friendship illuminates the vital aspects of friendship, both visible and invisible, and offers a refreshingly optimistic vision of human nature. It is a clarion call for putting positive relationships at the centre of our lives.

Summary Book Review Rethinking Friendship by Liz Spencer:
Download or read book Rethinking Friendship written by Liz Spencer and published by Princeton University Press. This book was released on 2018-06-05 with total page pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From Aristotle to contemporary soap operas, friendship has always been a subject of fascination. But scholarly investigation of the broad social relevance of friendship has been neglected. Rethinking Friendship describes the varied nature of personal relationships today, and also locates friendship in contemporary debates about individualization and the supposed "collapse of community." Exploring friendships with partners and family as well as "friends," the book reveals ways in which friends and friendlike ties are an important and unacknowledged source of social glue. Using a rigorous analysis of in-depth interviews, the authors develop a set of innovative concepts--friendship repertoires (the range of friendships people have); friendship modes (the way people make and maintain friendships over time); and patterns of suffusion (the extent to which boundaries between friends and family become blurred). These concepts form the basis of a typology of personal communities that vary in the roles played by friends, family, partners, and neighbors. Combining scholarly depth and rich description, this absorbing and accessible book will appeal to all those interested in informal social relationships, including students of methodology and policymakers. With its challenge to pessimistic commentators, Rethinking Friendship urges us to resist sweeping generalizations and to acknowledge the sheer diversity of social life today.

Book excerpt: In this new accessible philosophy of friendship, Mark Vernon links the resources of the philosophical tradition with numerous illustrations from modern culture to ask what friendship is, how it relates to sex, work, politics and spirituality.

Summary Book Review The Friendship Solution by Wayne Mitchell:
Download or read book The Friendship Solution written by Wayne Mitchell and published by Third Ghost Press. This book was released on 2021-05-07 with total page 195 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: One day, as we were reading an email to our advice column Direct Answers, Tamara looked up and said simply, “She doesn’t know what a friend is.” That line—she doesn’t know what a friend is—has come back to us again and again as we read letters about a problem with a friend. Although we didn’t realize it at the time, that is how The Friendship Solution began. We wrote this book for two reasons. First, when many people use the word “friend,” they are actually describing a frenemy, a person they dislike, a rival or an antagonist, or a person who manipulates them. They are not talking about a true friend, someone they know and like, someone they can trust to have their back. Understanding this distinction is one of the keys to having a good life. But understanding this distinction is not enough. We must act on it. That is the second purpose of this book. We want to explain why we need to sort people out based on where they should fit in our life. Some dictionaries define a friend as someone we know well and like, exclusive of sexual or family ties. In this regard, dictionaries are behind the times. More and more, psychologists are seeing our friends, family, and romantic relationships not as fundamentally different but as tributaries of the same river. That is why when we speak of friends in this book, we include traditional friends as well as relatives and romantic partners. The Friendship Solution is about the place of friendship in all our relationships. It is about why we have friends, what a good friend is, learning to say no, and letting go of bad friends. Through letters and research, we will paint a portrait of friendship as it is and as it should be. Finally, this book is a long answer to a short letter, a letter we got on the day Tamara looked up from an email and said, “She doesn’t know what a friend is.” From the prepublication reviews: “I'm sleeping better after reading this book.” “I like how thoughts run into each other; they form a cohesive explanation. You come by it so simply. I imagine many people stop and think: ‘They express what I have thought all along, but could not put into words.’” “I had goosebumps. This was so true, to the point....” “I love how comprehensive this book is.”
