Philia is a love; a form of affection based in friendship. Aristotle went into how this can be demonstrated in different forms in various styles of friendship.
This is the first of a series of the words used by other languages for love. Feel free to contribute or share some of your favorites!
The other seven loves: Agape, Ludus, Storge, Pragma, Eros, Mania, Philautia
