you’re welcome! I enjoy that song:cool:
it was not the reason I put it though. I just liked the idea of using the Italian word.
[quote=thewanderer]believe 3 of the greek words are
filia (filios?) - friendship
eros - romantic/erotic/lustful (I think all of these involve eros to some extent)
agape - purest form, like the love of God
I forget what the last one is, and I’m sure that someone else can explain them better and more fully than I can, but this is at least a quick overview of how I understand them.
[quote=triumphguy]There are a bunch of Greek words for love
agápe, éros, philía, and storgē
ἀγάπη agápē - unconditional love
ἔρως érōs - erotic love (though eros is much deeper than that - it can include passionate desire for oneness with God too)
φιλία philía - friendship
στοργή storgē - affection
thank you both - triumphguy & thewanderer. I was thinking latin but perhaps it was greek instead.
anyways this is exactly what I was looking for! I am having a conversation about this with a friend and wanted to ensure I have all my points right.
[quote=AthenaC]So “eros” is really passionate love, whether or not that includes sexual over- / undertones, correct? That would make a lot of sense. Interesting how different languages / cultures blend / separate concepts into words.
This is a very good inquiry. I too am having some problems in comparing what is taught (Catholicism) and what the word originally meant.
