Considered by many to be the most important philosopher of modern times, Friedrich Nietzsche influenced twentieth-century ideas and culture more than almost any other thinker. His best-known book, Thus Spoke Zarathustra —published in four parts in the last two decades of the nineteenth century—is also his masterpiece, and represents the fullest expression of his ideas up to that time.

A unique combination of biblical oratory and playfulness, Thus Spoke Zarathustra chronicles the wanderings and teachings of the prophet Zarathustra, who descends from his mountain retreat to awaken the world to its new salvation. Do not accept, he counsels, what almost two thousand years of history have taught you to call evil. The Greeks knew better: Goodness for them was nobility, pride, and victory, not the Christian virtues of humility, meekness, poverty, and altruism. The existence of the human race is justified only by the exceptional among us—the “superman,” whose self-mastery and strong “will to power” frees him from the common prejudices and assumptions of the day.

These and other concepts in Zarathustra were later perverted by Nazi propagandists, but Nietzsche, a despiser of mass movements both political and religious, did not ask his readers for faith and obedience, but rather for critical reflection, courage, and independence.

Kathleen M. Higgins and Robert C. Solomon are both professors of philosophy at the University Texas at Austin. Together, they have written What Nietzsche Really Said and A Short History of Philosophy and co-edited Reading Nietzsche .

论文选题相关 译版真的很重要 其实大二就读过了不过版本没有选好 撇开种族歧视和厌女(多半是欠妈管教)来说还是不错的。incredibly inspiring 希望能抽空拜读更多相关著作
Not easy to understand, but can be easily misinterpreted. This book is not meant for ordinary readers
太难读难懂了😭被tutor带着讲解了一遍仿佛清晰了很多 但又似乎这种理解只是我的错觉…然而看到别的同学也完全懵逼就狠狠释怀了
是谁 在漫长等待里读尼采()
结合Beyond Good and Evil和On the Genealogy of Morals 读的时候一边吐槽尼采的ego怎么能如此之大 怎么能一边痛骂别的哲学家一边做着一样的事;一边又感叹尼采自己的思想体系还是很完整的。到最后Z与生命共舞 数到终点时被感动了。面对深渊和eternal recurrence,愿你我永远upon the blessed isle
