Eros, agape, philia

posted: 02/11/2017 1 a.m. Discuss

With Valentine's Day soon upon us, I am working hard to turn my attention from the chaotic and polarizing events in our country to something more positive. While Valentine's Day focuses on romantic or "eros" love, our faith and spiritual traditions teach us there are other forms of love -- sometime called "agape love," defined by Wikipedia as "the highest form of love, charity; the love of God for man and of man for God." There is also "philia love," which is translated as "brotherly love" and defined as friendship and affection. So I would like to write about agape and philia love in the workplace.
