Goicoechea explains Nietzsche’s thesis that the agapeic love of Jesus is humankind’s highest affirmation. Prior to Q scholars—the researchers who study and attempt to reconstruct the supposed source of the content common to Matthew and Luke, but not present in Mark—Nietzsche saw this love as the essence of the Sermon on the Mount and based his philosophy upon it. Throughout the Catholic tradition agape fulfilled the affection of Empedocles, the eros of Plato, the friendship of Aristotle, and the agape of Plotinus. While, as Anders Nygren shows, modernists protested such syntheses, now postmodernists once again let agape and the four loves contribute to one another.
