As always Love is a very general word and must be broken down to it’s core values so that we can identify it’s type and nature. There are four known loves; Storge, Eros, Philia, and Agape. Each love is defined for a love of a certain people. Storge is a love for family. Eros is a love in romance. Philia is a love for friends. Agape is a love in companionship. In doing this we can find the greatest sort of all, and that is unconditional love. The Ultimate form of all good.
A summation of the four loves:
Storge – affection: A natural love through familiarity as a parent does to an offspring. Found in usually between family members or people who were found by chance.
Eros – romantic and intimate: This is raw sexuality balanced with romance where one is “to be in love”. A desire for women or many woman from a man’s perspective. Eros turns the natural pleasure into appreciation where trust and loyalty become key attributes for sustainable eros.
Philia – the love between friends: Friendship is a bond between people who share common activity and interest. Friendship is chosen and reinforced through respect and understanding.
Agape – unconditional: Love that brings caring regardless of circumstance. Known as the greatest of loves; different from erotic or emotive affection and aligned with the ultimate good.
