When we were young we listened to jovial stories about princes and princesses falling in love and getting married. We were taught that we only have one true love out there and that this person who is always the opposite gender completes us. As we grow older many of us seek to fulfill this romantic ideal.

Being a romantic soul myself, I always thought that my soulmate would be a tall, mysterious, rebellious, Australian bloke. Perhaps I was simply projecting my own disowned anima my divine masculine energy outwards?

Eros and Philia are the two Greek words, which can be translated at the same time as love in English. This article focuses on the idea that Plato weaves around the emotion of love. Arrange the one hand, there is the verb philein and its cognates philia is the noun, philos the adjective —a word we use all the time when we talk about benevolence, philosophy, philharmonic, and the like. So as to does not mean that whenever a big cheese wants something, he loves it. The relationship goes in the other direction: whenever someone loves, he wants. This thesis says nothing about what benevolent of desire one has, when individual loves. It may be a appeal that Plato would locate in the appetitive part of the soul, although it need not be. The dress up Plato most often uses for appeal in the passage examined in this article, as so often, is epithumia.
