Love may be so described as a Platonic Form, belonging to the higher realm of transcendental concepts that mortals can barely conceive of in their purity, catching only glimpses of the Forms' conceptual shadows that logic and reason unveil or disclose.
Those who consider love to be an aesthetic response would hold that love is knowable through the emotional and conscious feeling it provokes yet which cannot perhaps be captured in rational or descriptive language: it is instead to be captured, as far as that is possible, by metaphor or by music.

 Eros and the Mystery of the Inner Process
In fact, Eros cannot be separated from his beloved Psyche, since they are united by a secret and sacred bond, invisible and unconscious in man. In fact, man’s psyche remains filled with erotic, sensual, carnal desires that keep him and his mind trapped on the physical plane along with his emotions and consciousness.
Hence, Eros is himself the "mixer of the seeds and sperms" in creation, the primal cause, the bringer of life in the womb of nature.

 Encyclical Letter "Deus Caritas Est"
It is part of love's growth towards higher levels and inward purification that it now seeks to become definitive, and it does so in a twofold sense: both in the sense of exclusivity (this particular person alone) and in the sense of being “for ever”.
Love of neighbour, grounded in the love of God, is first and foremost a responsibility for each individual member of the faithful, but it is also a responsibility for the entire ecclesial community at every level: from the local community to the particular Church and to the Church universal in its entirety.
Whoever loves Christ loves the Church, and desires the Church to be increasingly the image and instrument of the love which flows from Christ.

Eros is the Greek word for (especially) romantic or sexual love.

 Loose Canon: Saving Love
This is destined to be one of the most quoted lines: "Eros, reduced to pure 'sex,' has become a commodity, a mere 'thing' to be bought and sold, or rather, man himself becomes a commodity." It is closest to the expected rebuke.
The element of agape thus enters into this love, for otherwise eros is impoverished and even loses its own nature.
God's love extends to all his creatures--but there is nothing in this encyclical to even hint that Benedict is abandoning the Church's teaching on homosexuality.

Erich Neumann sees Psyche as originally bound to Eros in a paradise of uroboric unconsciousness, and when she sees Eros in the light, this original unconscious tie is dissolved.
For Neumann the link between individuation and love as encounter is one of the central psychological insights of the myth: "With Psyche, then, there appears a new love principle, in which the encounter between feminine and masculine is revealed as the basis of individuation" (Amor and Psyche, p.

 Love (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
Soble's intent in understanding eros to be a reason-dependent sort of love is to articulate a sharp contrast with agape, a sort of love that does not respond to the value of its object.
As the distinction between eros and agape in Section 1 indicates, there are at least two ways to construe this in terms of whether the lover values the beloved because she is valuable, or whether the beloved comes to be valuable to the lover as a result of her loving him.
So it is because love involves forming a “we” that we must understand other persons and not properties to be the objects of love, and it is because my very identity as a person depends essentially on that “we” that it is not possible to substitute without loss one object of my love for another.

 Plato on Friendship and Eros (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy)
Loving boys correctly, after all, is — in part at least — just a matter of knowing how to talk to them, of how to persuade them to love you back.
For, according to it, love is really “two things”: good Uranian love, whose object is the soul, and whose aim is to instill virtue in the younger male; and bad Pandemotic love, whose object is the body and whose aim is sexual pleasure for the older lover (180c1-d7).
Loving Socrates, we may infer, is a complex business, since just what someone loves in loving him is tied to that person's peculiar desires, and the limits they impose on how like Socrates he can become.

Eros in Aries people are attached to the sensations of the moment and may see their partner as an object, or an extension of themselves.
Eros in Sagittarius can show up as passion for knowledge, hunger for new experiences, and a love of travel and exploring new lands and cultures.
Eros is, indeed, turned on by the idea that they are arousing someone else, but this kind of "feedback" is very much used to feed our own need to feel alive and vital.

 An Interpretation of Courtly Love
The Neoplatonists said that the lover is possessed by Eros (Love, described as a fair youth), and the beloved is possessed by Anteros (Responding Love, described as a dark youth).
Courtly love may be understood as a spiritual practice in which the lover invoked (invited possession by) Eros, and the beloved invoked (invited possession by) Anteros or divine Wisdom.
Separation was another characteristic of courtly love because, short of death, the mortal lover could not enjoy the ecstasy of permanent union with the immortal Beloved.

Agape and eros originally had nothing to do with each other, because they belong to two "entirely separate spiritual worlds, between which no direct communication is possible" (31-32).
Although he never gives a firm definition of this love, he identifies it both with the inclination toward the sensual expressed in mystery-piety and with the drive to transcend the sensual that Plato expresses in its highest form.
Eros in mystery-piety is the vulgar eros of the sense-world; eros in Plato is the heavenly striving for the transcendent world of ideas.
