Cicero introduces the Roman concept of friendship through a dialogue between Laelius and his two sons-in-law, one of them being Ciceroís teacher who later recounted the dialogue to him. Laelius, bereaved by the recent death of his close friend Scipio, describes various aspects of friendship. Cicero has captured the emotions and actualities brilliantly. Touching and thought-provoking!
