Hello World!

Uncategorized

I would like to welcome all of you to my (our) website. My goal is to create a website that is focus around everything love.

In particular, The four Ancient Greek words for love: Philia, Storge, Agape, and Eros.

As defined by Wikipedia

Philia (/ˈfɪliə/Ancient Greekφιλία), often translated “brotherly love“, is one of the four ancient Greek words for lovephiliastorgeagape and eros. In Aristotle‘s Nicomachean Ethics, philia is usually translated as “friendship” or affection.[1] The complete opposite is called a phobia.

Storge (/ˈstɔːrɡi/,[1] from the Ancient Greek word στοργή storgē[2]) or familial love refers to natural or instinctual affection,[1][3] such as the love of a parent towards offspring and vice versa.

In social psychology, another term for love between good friends is philia.[3]

Agape (Ancient Greek ἀγάπηagapē) is a GrecoChristian term referring to love, “the highest form of love, charity” and “the love of God for man and of man for God”.[1] The word is not to be confused with philiabrotherly love, or philautia, self-love, as it embraces a universal, unconditional love that transcends and persists regardless of circumstance. It goes beyond just the emotions to the extent of seeking the best for others. The noun form first occurs in the Septuagint, but the verb form goes as far back as Homer, translated literally as affection, as in “greet with affection” and “show affection for the dead”.[2] Other ancient authors have used forms of the word to denote love of a spouse or family, or affection for a particular activity, in contrast to eros (an affection of a sexual nature).

Within Christianity, agape is considered to be the love originating from God or Christ for humankind [3] In the New Testament, it refers to the covenant love of God for humans, as well as the human reciprocal love for God; the term necessarily extends to the love of one’s fellow man.[4] Some contemporary writers have sought to extend the use of agape into non-religious contexts.[5][6]

The concept of agape has been widely examined within its Christian context.[7] It has also been considered in the contexts of other religions,[8] religious ethics,[9] and science.[10]

Eros (/ˈɪərɒs/ or /ˈɛrɒs/Ancient Greekἔρως érōs “love” or “desire”) is one of the four ancient Greco-Christian terms which can be rendered into English as “love“. The other three are storgephilia, and agapeEros refers to “passionate love” or romantic love; storge to familial love; philia to friendship as a kind of love; and agape refers to “selfless love”, or “charity” as it is translated in the Christian scriptures (from the Latin caritas, dearness).[1]

The term erotic is derived from erosEros has also been used in philosophy and psychology in a much wider sense, almost as an equivalent to “life energy”.[2]

As you know, our world today is in chaos. I believe a round table talk is needed. One of which everyone and anyone can be heard and acknowledged.
