Inhaltsangabe: Thus Spoke Zarathustra: A Book for All and None (German: Also sprach Zarathustra: Ein Buch für Alle und Keinen) 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 Overman. 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 Zarathustra. A central irony of the text is that Nietzsche mimics the style of the Bible in order to present ideas which fundamentally oppose Christian and Jewish morality and tradition. (Source: wikipedia.org)
Über den Autor:
Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (1844?1900) is possibly one of the most famous?and often misquoted?philosophers of the nineteenth century. He began his career as a classical philologist before turning to philosophy, where his success was so marked that in 1869?at the age of only twenty-four?he was appointed to the Chair of Classical Philology at the University of Basel. Suffering from poor health his entire life, he eventually died of symptoms now known to be linked to brain cancer, while under the care of his sister Elisabeth.
Elisabeth Förster-Nietzsche (1846?1935) is famous not only for being Friedrich?s closest family member, but also creator of the Nietzsche Archive in Weimar, and for her own strongly-held political views, which included membership of the Nazi party?an association which has incorrectly led many to associate her brother with that movement.
Thomas Common (1850?1919) was an Edinburgh-based British translator and critic, most famous for his Nietzsche translations.
