Abstract

In a mini-project funded by the Subject Centre, we reviewed the educational literature on peer support and used focus groups to explore students' ideas of academic and critical friendship. We report on our findings, make some connections with philosophical writing on friendship, and offer some steps that institutions might take to foster academically fecund friendships among philosophy students.
