Thesis: How Aristotle’s argument differs between good and bad self-love between perfect and imperfect love.
Aristotle defines “self-love [as] a component of friendship [which] indentifies self-love with selfishness,” (Senay, Suzanne. Canadian Scholars’ Press: Custom Coursebook Series. “Philosophy of Love and Sex – Second Edition.” pg. 31, 11.5/11.51) he also describes two kinds of love, which is good, and bad self-love, in which he believes that the only good kind of self-love should love.

The good-self lover and friendships are similar because, unlike the bad kind of self-love, they do not act in their own self-interests, and are willing to forfeit their own money. “For it is said that we must love most the friend who is most a friend; and one person is most a friend to another if he wishes goods to the other for the other’s sake.” (Senay, Suzanne.

Within unconditional love and friendships this is certainly supported when you take into account that Aristotle believes that friendships will be sacrificing actions towards one another when your friend takes the responsibility instead of yourself, “since it may be finer to be responsible for his friend’s doing the action than do it himself.” (Senay, Suzanne.
