Composed in four parts between 1883 and 1885, Thus Spoke Zarathustra is the most famous and influential work of German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche. The work is a philosophical novel in which the character of Zarathustra, a religious prophet-like figure, delivers a series of lessons and sermons in a Biblical style that articulate the central ideas of Nietzsche’s mature thought. Key to the philosophy of Thus Spoke Zarathustra is a rejection of traditional systems of religious morality, the idea of the will to power, and a vision of a new, higher mode of being, the “übermensch” or “Superman,” one of Nietzsche’s most famous and controversial figures.

As innovative stylistically as it is philosophically, Thus Spoke Zarathustra is both a literary masterpiece and an enduring classic of moral thought. This version of Thus Spoke Zarathustra is the translation by Thomas Common.

    " Nietzsche is brilliant here. The elegance of his thought captured in a narrative parable rather than a dry discourse or a collection of aphorisms is truly wonderful, and allows his points to be made much more artfully and transparently. "

    " I owe Nietzsche for this text on how to deal with weakness. Although my personal philosophy has diverged i will never forget the ubermensch and his will to power. "
