Types of Love: Love as ‘Eros’.
Love as ‘Eros’. You will be surprised to hear it, but the word ‘Eros’ previously did not mean what you think. Among different types of love, it was very highly appreciated. It was the love to the invisible idea rather than to a particular person. The ancient Greeks, strangely to us, loved the truth, the good, and the beautiful. Didn’t they love their lovers? Well, they desired them erotically for sure, but ‘Eros’ was something of a much higher level and more respected. Impersonal and eternal. Awkward?
