SMIT, Dirk J. On politics of friendship. STJ [online]. 2021, vol.7, n.1, pp.1-39. ISSN 2413-9467.

The paper distinguishes four dominant discourses in contemporary so-called politics of friendship, namely a politics of enmity (Schmitt), a politics based on the notion of friends as "another self" (Aristotle), a politics of love (Augustine), and a politics of "perhaps" (Derrida). It then considers if and how Koopman's person and work fit into such a typology.

Keywords : Nico Koopman; friendship; politics of friendship; concept of the political; another self.
