Thus Spoke Zarathustra is a treatise by Friedrich Nietzsche, written in four parts and published in German between 1883 and 1885. The work is among the first of Nietzsche's mature philosophy and is considered the masterpiece of his career. It received little attention during his lifetime, but its influence since his death has been considerable both in the arts and in philosophy.
Written in the form of prose narrative, Thus Spoke Zarathustra presents Neitzsche's mature philosopy through the protagonist Zarathustra, who after years of meditation has come down from a mountain to offer his wisdom to the world. It is this work in which Nietzsche made his famous (and much misconstrued) statement that "God is dead" and in which he presented some of the most influential and well-known ideas of his philosophy, including those of the Übermensch ("superman") and the "will to power."
Part of the bestselling Capstone Classics series. This high-quality, hardcover volume is a must-have for readers interested in the philosophy of Nietzsche.
