The philosophers Confucius, Aristotle, and Cicero, discussed the importance of family as a starting point for a more friendly and healthier society. This concept has been depicted by modern authors such as James Baldwin in his book The Fire Next Time. In addition, contemporary authors such as Xin Liang, Sibin Wu, and Shujuan Zhang have used the philosopher's perspective as a critical point in their research. Drawing from the philosopher's perspective and modern writers, the concept of family as a foundation for friendships based on goodness is conveyed.
