4 types of love or the evolution of relationships
There are four types of love (Rolla May classification from the book "Paradoxes of love and sex"):
“The first is sex, or what we call lust, the libido.”
- The second is Eros, love, as the desire for reproduction or creativity - the highest, according to the ancient Greeks, forms of being and relationships between people.
- The third type is filia, or friendship, brotherly love.
- The fourth type is agape (or caritas, which the ancient Latins spoke about) - concern for the welfare of another person, the prototype of which is God's love for man.
Any human sense of genuine love is a mixture (in various proportions) of all four types of love.
