What Is Eros Love? Definition and More!

Eros love is the Classic Greek word that represents passionate and romantic love, and is the basis of the word “erotic.”

As the types of Greek love go, it is the one that is NOT Platonic love, as it does involved a physical component.

However, Plato himself (who never actually used the term ‘Platonic Love’) actually believed Eros could be divided into 2 parts: Eros Vulgar (the physical side) and Divine Eros which is “divine love.”

This “Divine Eros” would actually be considered Platonic love, and is more or less the equivalent of Agape.

In the time of the Greeks, this love was considered a type of madness that was sent down by the Gods, or theia mania.
