Platonic Love
Platonic love
Platonic love
(often lower-cased as platonic[1]) is a term used for a type of love that is non-sexual. It is named after Plato, though the philosopher never used the term himself. Platonic love
Platonic love
is examined in Plato's dialogue, the Symposium, which has as its topic the subject of love or Eros generally. It explains the possibilities of how the feeling of love began and how it has evolved—both sexually and non-sexually. Of particular importance is the speech of Socrates, who attributes to the prophetess Diotima an idea of platonic love as a means of ascent to contemplation of the divine. For Diotima, and for Plato
Plato
generally, the most correct use of love of human beings is to direct one's mind to love of divinity. In short, with genuine platonic love, the beautiful or lovely other person inspires the mind and the soul and directs one's attention to spiritual things
