In Plato's idea of love, the idea of romantic love initially stems from the Platonic tradition that love is a desire for beauty-a value that transcends the particularities of the physical body. For Plato, the love of beauty culminates in the love of philosophy, the subject that pursues the highest capacity of thinking.

Aristotle is of the opinion that erotic love is a function of effort of man to achieve happiness in life by the fulfillment of desire
