At several points in the Lysis , Socrates advances an instrumental account of friendship ( iaf ) – the view that friendship is always motivated by a desire to use others for one’s own gain, treating others as mere means (e.g. 210b-d). In Aristotelian jargon: iaf says that all friendships are

This chapter discusses friendship as a centrifugal movement away from identity, similarity, and sameness. In contradistinction to approaches that tend to look for the essence of friendship and/or discuss it as a relationship that takes place in a chronotopic vacuum, the argument presented here is based on a certain diagnostics which holds that contemporary friendship has been caught in the centripetal forces of commonality, security, and trust in accordance with the psychopolitical demand for the production of shielded and encapsulated personhoods. Drawing on Esposito’s notion of community not as a common property or a fusion of individuals, but as constituted by lack and abstraction, and with reference to anthropological evidence on the notion of friendship among the Mapuche Indigenous population of Chile, the chapter attempts to prefigure friendship as the opening-up of the individual to the outside, a relational experimentation, and a radical grammar of relating that can rejuvenate the impoverished relational fabric.
