Emotion science has a lot to say about love. In this week's episode, we discuss chocolate, psychedelics, prairie voles, oxytocin, and the Greek phrase "fasolaki mou" ("my little green bean").
Join our recurring hosts Dr. Alan Cowen, Dr. Dacher Keltner, Danielle Krettek-Cobb, and Matt Forte as they welcome special guest, actor Melina Kanakaredes ("CSI: NY" and "The Resident.“)
In this clip, actor Melina Kanakaredes explains how the Greek language and culture embrace the emotion of love. There are no fewer than 8 different Greek words for different types of love, including Melina's favorite, "filia" - the lifting up of others.
