Abstract

Friendship is an inherent and important part of human life. Our close friends can influence us and benefit us in profound ways. What happens, then, when someone who appears to be morally good is friends with someone who is morally bad? Is true friendship possible between the morally good and morally bad person? I explore this problem and argue that such a friendship is not possible.
