Love can be.. Eros, Philia, Agape…

According to the Ancient Greek philosophers there are three different types of love:

 

Eros  is the type of love that constitutes a passionate intense desire for someone. In Plato’s writing eros is a common desire that seeks transcendental beauty.

 

Philia entails a fondness and appreciation of the other. Aristotle elaborates that the proper basis of philia is sharing dispositions, bear no grudges, mutual admiration and so on…

 

Agape refers to the paternal love of God for humans and humans for God but extended to include brotherly love of all humanity. Agape draws on elements from eros and philia in that it seeks a perfect kind of love.

 

Enjoy this day and everyday, whatever kind of love you are celebrating…

 

Jewel Your self this special day (inside and out!!)
