Thus Spoke Zarathustra: A Book for Everyone and No One

Author:

Availability: Out Of Stock

Zarathustra was an ancient prophet who lived on the mountains, but later came down to convey his message about God being dead and the Superman, his human form, being his messenger on Earth. Through his book, the author advocates that the true sense of living lies not in submitting to meek religious practices, but in discovering the passions of one’s life. The book had been originally written in four parts. The book is primarily based on the idea of the death of god, however, it also conveys ideas like the eternal recurrence of the same. The idea of the book was first born while the author had been writing another book called The Gay Science, when he discovered the notion of the eternal recurrence, which according to him is the central idea behind Zarathustra’s preachings. Even though most of the ideas in the book have been derived from the saint’s original ideologies, a huge part is based on his fictitious travels. Another of Zarathustra’s famous declarations was designating humans as an interpolation between Ubermensch and apes, which also forms an important theme in several parts of the book. The Ubermensch (or the overman in English), a man who has overcome or mastered himself, is the designated messenger of God on Earth and is his human embodiment. Many different qualities have been used to describe and refer to Ubermensch in the story, including self-cultivation, self-direction, self-overcoming and self-mastery. Through Thus Spoke Zarathustra, the author aimed to seek an alternative mode to strict moral and societal codes of conduct and to avoid nihilism. He emphasized the will to power as the central theme to human existence. According to him, the will to power is an analysis of human actions and can be accelerated through mastery of the self. The book uses many different methods of description including poetry. It acts as a preliminary introduction to several of the author’s later philosophical works, which derive from the ideas in this volume.
