Instructions: According to a Lewisian view of friendship, is friendship a type of good or value? If so, what sort of goodness or value does it have– is it aesthetically good, ethically good, useful for various purposes or something else? Is friendship good in general or only under certain conditions? Is friendship not itself a good but something that can give rise to goods? Can friendship be both a moral good and something we have moral concerns about? If so, what moral concerns should we have about friendship? Moreover, could one argue that on a Lewisian view, one is required to make and/or maintain friendships? If so, is this a strict or more lenient requirement? Should we make and/or maintain friendships wherever possible or just sometimes or under certain conditions?
