Project concept

Philia also called brotherly love, is one of the four ancient Greek words for love. It is usually translated as friendship though in fact his use of the term is much broader. All of these different relationships involve getting on well with someone, though Aristotle at times implies that something more like actual liking is required. Friendships of the good are ones where both friends enjoy each other's characters. As long as both friends keep similar characters, the relationship will endure since the motive behind it is care for the friend.
