The perfect friendship is ' ' that one between the good and mutually similar individuals in virtue substance, this because these friends if equally desire the alien property in the quality of good and are good in itself same. However, they are those that want the good of its friends for its friends who are friends in felt fuller, since they love for they themselves and not acidentalmente' ' . Therefore, in the concept of perfect friendship, the individuals of the relation do not see the other as a mere instrument for the reach of determined purpose, either the profit or the interest, the utility or the immediate pleasure, not. It has friendship here for the simple fact to have love and affection, reciprocal considered (from there the idea of filia in strict direction), directed by the consideration not of some quality or advantage that the other people’s individual can provide, but by the proper essence of this, the proper way and way of each one being, it is that it will have the relation of perfect friendship.

In justice it will have friendship and in the friendship, justice will meet. Justice understood here as the idea of equality with proportionality bias and mediania.
