Agape and Personhood
with Kierkegaard, Mother, and Paul (A Logic of Reconciliation from the Shamans to Today)
Imprint: Pickwick Publications
"As a mother, poet, and psychologist, now a 'Baboushka' figure, I have found Dr. Goiccochea's philosophical presentations of personhood very congruent with my personal and professional experience. I would recommend his work to anyone seeking catalytic writing to further their personal psychological development and deepen their social understanding and action. His words are best read as meditations on attitudes which are foundational in human experience.
author of Pilot's Log: A WWI Memoir
"Just as Kierkegaard considered himself to be the Socrates of Christianity, so David Goicoechea can be considered the Kierkegaard of Postmodernity. With his love for paradox, his questing nature, and his emphasis on understanding love it all its manifestations, Goicoechea here gives us a powerful exploration of the meaning of 'personhood' in a fractured world."
St. John Fisher College
"In Agape and Personhood, David Goicoechea guides his readers on a rewarding journey through the Uncanny; a place familiar yet alien, a landscape vivid yet subdued. Along the way we encounter our fragility and strength as we strive to be genuinely human. This book is a remarkable account of how we are reconciled to ourselves and to each other."
