I cannot think of one book that has more influence on me than Thus Spoke Zarathustra. It is a book that I once read at least once a year and it never failed to fill my mind with hope and ideas. I totally disagree with those who consider Nietzsche to be hard, stern, and without hope. I find nothing but hope in the works of Nietzsche. He deepest desire was to see humans remove the yoke of any oppressive ideologies which hindered thoughts and imagination. My initial reading of Zarathustra was very disappointing. I was not ready for the very stylized language he used but subsequent reading made me look beyond the style and see the thoughts behind them and then yielded the wisdom beneath. I make no claims to entirely understand Nietzsche but someone who dropped out before reaching high school I believe I have a fairly good grasp of his overall principles. His ideas are not so abstract that only scholars can understand them. I have now read most of his major works and consider him the...
This book was amazing. I was dumbfounded when i realized the format of the book which is more of a story telling. Zarathustra is a prophet of godlessness. He brings word of god's death and promotes living the life fully and happily. It is a great way of criticizing religions' negative impacts on people's lives. how people live their lives in misery merely for living for the idea of afterlife. Obliviously, Nietzsche was inspired by the story of Jesus and in a way this book is sort of satirical you cannot help but smile and at times laugh at the idiotic ways the people live their lives and insist upon living their lives. Zarathustra's search for the higher men and the superman is amazing. You become a superman or higher men if you realize the life is worth of living and you enjoy the life without expectation of a life after and give up childish beliefs of a higher power. Zarathustra manifests how hard it is to find the superman or higher men. People are just not able to accept the fact...
It's a tough read, don't think it isn't, but it is lovely in both its hope and its hopelessness. For all mankind: unattainable. There is often the positive notion, in its most hopeful moment contrasted by the basest derogation by man in which there surely appears no hope for him. It appears that most people, the generally unread, have done much quoting of Nietzsche out of context and ultimately, Nietzsche must have known he'd be oft misquoted for he states: `I suspect ye would call my Superman - a devil!' (2021). In the appendix it is also a note to casual readers - this is not where to being reading any Nietzsche, so if you're starting here - stop!. This is `the opus' which is the child of many works of previous thought, for the future love of all that is Nietzsche, don't start here! This is the allegorical surmising of much of Nietzsche's work. Quite fantastic.
This work has the ability to present in a very new-age fashion, per philosophically its primary goal is...
