By Tyler Curry September 30 However, neither is having a lazy eye, being born without a limb, being overweight, or even being insecure about the size and shape of your body or any of its parts.
Humans are dependent on parental help for a large portion of their lifespans compared to other mammals. Love has therefore been seen as a mechanism to promote parental support of children for this extended time period.
Furthermore, researchers as early as Charles Darwin himself identified unique features of human love compared to other mammals and credit love as a major factor for creating social support systems that enabled the development and expansion of the human species. This would favor monogamous relationships over polygamy.
Certainly love is influenced by hormones such as oxytocinneurotrophins such as NGFand pheromonesand how people think and behave in love is influenced by their conceptions of love.
The conventional view in biology is that there are two major drives in love: Attachment between adults is presumed to work on the same principles that lead an infant to become attached to its mother.
The traditional psychological view sees love as being a combination of companionate love and passionate love. Passionate love is intense longing, and is often accompanied by physiological arousal shortness of breath, rapid heart rate ; companionate love is affection and a feeling of intimacy not accompanied by physiological arousal.
Cultural views See also: Greek words for love Roman copy of a Greek sculpture by Lysippus depicting Erosthe Greek personification of romantic love Greek distinguishes several different senses in which the word "love" is used.
Ancient Greeks identified four forms of love: At the same time, the Ancient Greek text of the Bible has examples of the verb agapo having the same meaning as phileo. The term s'agapo means I love you in Greek. The word agapo is the verb I love.
It generally refers to a "pure," ideal type of love, rather than the physical attraction suggested by eros. However, there are some examples of agape used to mean the same as eros.
It has also been translated as "love of the soul.
The Greek word erota means in love. Plato refined his own definition. Although eros is initially felt for a person, with contemplation it becomes an appreciation of the beauty within that person, or even becomes appreciation of beauty itself.
Eros helps the soul recall knowledge of beauty and contributes to an understanding of spiritual truth. Lovers and philosophers are all inspired to seek truth by eros. Some translations list it as "love of the body". Philia is motivated by practical reasons; one or both of the parties benefit from the relationship.
It can also mean "love of the mind. It was an almost ritualized friendship formed between a host and his guest, who could previously have been strangers. The host fed and provided quarters for the guest, who was expected to repay only with gratitude.
The importance of this can be seen throughout Greek mythology —in particular, Homer 's Iliad and Odyssey. Ancient Roman Latin The Latin language has several different verbs corresponding to the English word "love.
The Romans used it both in an affectionate sense as well as in a romantic or sexual sense. From this verb come amans—a lover, amator, "professional lover," often with the accessory notion of lechery—and amica, "girlfriend" in the English sense, often being applied euphemistically to a prostitute.
The corresponding noun is amor the significance of this term for the Romans is well illustrated in the fact, that the name of the City, Rome —in Latin: Roma—can be viewed as an anagram for amor, which was used as the secret name of the City in wide circles in ancient times which is also used in the plural form to indicate love affairs or sexual adventures.
This same root also produces amicus—"friend"—and amicitia, "friendship" often based to mutual advantage, and corresponding sometimes more closely to "indebtedness" or "influence".
Cicero wrote a treatise called On Friendship de Amicitiawhich discusses the notion at some length. Ovid wrote a guide to dating called Ars Amatoria The Art of Lovewhich addresses, in depth, everything from extramarital affairs to overprotective parents.
Diligere often has the notion "to be affectionate for," "to esteem," and rarely if ever is used for romantic love. This word would be appropriate to describe the friendship of two men.
The corresponding noun diligentia, however, has the meaning of "diligence" or "carefulness," and has little semantic overlap with the verb.
Observare is a synonym for diligere; despite the cognate with English, this verb and its corresponding noun, observantia, often denote "esteem" or "affection.
As it arises from a conflation with a Greek word, there is no corresponding verb. Two philosophical underpinnings of love exist in the Chinese tradition, one from Confucianism which emphasized actions and duty while the other came from Mohism which championed a universal love.
In Confucianism, one displays benevolent love by performing actions such as filial piety from children, kindness from parent, loyalty to the king and so forth.Venus is on two really lovely Taurean degrees over the next few days Taurus 28 and Taurus 29 (which equals Taurus 27+ and Taurus 28+ in the zodiac).
