Philosophy of Love.

I wrote a paper on the Philosophy of Love. I think it is interesting to look into different people's point of views on love. Their views can differ so greatly. Some people in love so much while others question if it's really real. When writing the paper, I talked to my friends a lot about the subject.

In the paper, I learned that love is divided into three categories if you go by Greek terminology. The three categories are Eros, Philia, and Agape. Eros love is mostly desire. Philia is when you have a fondness for someone, in a sense. Agape is a "brotherly love for all humanity." It was interesting to read about how love is broken down and to what categories each relationship would be placed into. Their is a place for romantic love, for family love, and for friendships. It is cool to see how each develops and how each is actually defined.
