Overview

Thus Spoke Zarathustra: A Book for All and None (also translated as "Thus Spoke Tharathustra") is a philosophical novel by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, composed in four parts between 1883 and 1885. Much of the work deals with ideas such as the "eternal recurrence of the same", the parable on the "death of God", and the "prophecy" of the Übermensch, which were first introduced in The Gay Science.

Described by Nietzsche himself as "the deepest ever written," the book is a dense and esoteric treatise on philosophy and morality, featuring as protagonist a fictionalized prophet descending from his mountain retreat to mankind, Zarathustra.

I love Nietzsche’s work so I am probably biased. Thus Spoke Zarathustra is a tough read but it is worth it. If you want to read something that will make you think then you can’t get much better than this.

Does the writing seem immoral? You have to keep an open mind.

Do people even inspect their ebook before reviewing nowadays? This edition has many gratuitious mistakes that any idiot should be able to notice Then again this is the place where some high schooler claims that Nietzsche "literally changed his life" while not even capitalizing or using punctualization properly so what can you expect lol
