Friedrich Nietzsche's most accessible and influential philosophical work, misquoted, misrepresented, brilliantly original and enormously influential Nietzsche was one of the most revolutionary and subversive thinkers in Western philosophy, and Thus Spoke Zarathustra remains his most famous and influential work. It describes how the ancient Persian prophet Zarathustra descends from his solitude in the mountains to tell the world that God is dead and that the Superman, the human embodiment of divinity, is his successor. Nietzsche's utterance 'God is dead', his insistence that the meaning of life is to be found in purely human terms, and his doctrine of the Superman and the will to power were all later seized upon and unrecognisably twisted by, among others, Nazi intellectuals. With blazing intensity and poetic brilliance, Nietzsche argues that the meaning of existence is not to be found in religious pieties or meek submission to authority, but in an all-powerful life force: passionate, chaotic and free.  For more than seventy years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,700 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines. Readers trust the series to provide authoritative texts enhanced by introductions and notes by distinguished scholars and contemporary authors, as well as up-to-date translations by award-winning translators.… (mais)

"I am a railing beside the stream: he who can grasp me, let him grasp me! I am not, however, your crutch. Thus spoke Zarathustra." (pg. 67)

This is my first real encounter with Nietzsche (after a slight collection of his aphorisms a few years ago), and a strange but compelling one. Thus Spoke Zarathustra is a peculiar mix of philosophy and narrative and poetry, and the reader tries to grasp it like wild horses. You don't know which hat to put on: Your rational one to deal with the philosophy? Your literary one to deal with the narrative? Or do you just open up and see what concepts rest with your poetic soul?

Regardless of which approach you take as you try to navigate this mercurial book, you soon find that Nietzsche's ideas are worth contending with. He's unfairly maligned nowadays; in part for his eccentric and animated writing, which stands in contrast to the more sober conventions of philosophy, and in part for his perceived baggage. His concepts of nihilism, the Ubermensch and the 'will to power' were all corrupted by the Nazis, a fact which is particularly unfortunate when you consider that Nietzsche personally opposed the sort of anti-Semitism and militarism that they used to leech onto his ideas.

Nevertheless, this is dangerous thought, and when reading it you can easily see where and how the Nazis appropriated and corrupted it. But, with an open and honest read, you can also just as easily see how superior and distinct Nietzsche's real ideas were. Not only in some telling specifics ("the state is the coldest of all cold monsters" (pg. 75)), but in the general warp and weft of the text. He acknowledges the danger in the philosophy as essentially the danger in man: "Now it is with men as with this tree. The more it wants to rise into the heights and the light, the more determinedly do its roots strive earthwards, downwards, into the darkness, into the depths – into evil" (pg. 69). His famous diagnosis of the death of God is expanded upon in this book, and his remedy is the eventual rise of an Ubermensch, a hyper-individualistic 'overman' or 'superman', who will break the ossified order of societal values and create his own. If this seems too romantic or bombastic to a cynical modern reader, it must be qualified that Nietzsche sees it as a torrid struggle of ego-death and rebirth ("man is a bridge and not a goal" (pg. 215)) rather than a glorious charge.

Regardless of whether you come to agree with them, Nietzsche's ideas here are spectacular and stimulating. Sometimes you don't necessarily want to wrangle these wild horses, but just watch them buck majestically. But even more than its ideas, Thus Spoke Zarathustra is provocative in its writing. The book is a forceful jeremiad, aping the tones of the Bible to produce a genuinely entertaining display of thought. In contrast to the sober conventional philosophy I mentioned above, Nietzsche is surprisingly readable. Lines such as "we have made weary fire itself. All our wells have dried up, even the sea has receded" (pg. 156) carry power on a poetic level, even if the reader's philosophical thoughts may stray.

It does get a bit overblown at times, and the ending didn't convince me of Nietzsche's goal. I lost the thread of argument, and Zarathustra's final revelatory change seemed abrupt. But by that point, it didn't matter; I was enjoying Nietzsche's singular blend of philosophised storytelling too much. It's a novel approach to getting one's ideas across, and it's a shame we don't seem to have a place for writing like this anymore.

Nietzsche's 'death of God' diagnosis of the modern world was on the nose, but in doing so he also diagnosed his own eclipse. "Everything speaks, everything is unheard. One may ring in one's wisdom with bells – the shopkeeper in the market-place will out-ring it with pennies... Nothing falls any longer into deep wells" (pp203-4). We're not approaching a Nietzschean overman anymore (if indeed we ever were). Instead, writers this bold have been driven to extinction. There are higher mountains buried under ocean than Everest or any other to be found on land. But when Nietzsche writes that Zarathustra is sitting upon "high masts of knowledge", "a little light, to be sure, but yet a great comfort to castaway sailors and the shipwrecked" (pg. 213), there may be some consolation to be drawn. The petty sea will swallow many, but perhaps some readers will continue to land on these shores. ( )

Regardless of one's opinion of Nietzsche or his philosophical system (if he truly can be said to have one; at least a coherent one), this is a great piece of literature. As translator R. J. Hollingdale says in his introduction, Nietzsche "feels his thoughts" (12). This inseparable coupling of emotion and intellect (chaos?) give birth to the "dancing star" that is Nietzsche's writing. I remember when I went from reading Plato and Aristotle and Hume and Reid and Kant to reading my first bit of Nietzsche--I was floored that philosophy could be written in such a dazzling way, even if I cannot totally get on board with all the iconoclasticism present in his works. In this book as in others, one gets a sense of the intensity and urgency with which Nietzsche wants to take humanity beyond its hitherto perceived limits. He takes pains to trace our values and beliefs back to, "simply," a will to power. And then he beckons is to hardness this innate will to power and march into the metamorphosis of the Übermensch (translated as Superman in this edition). ( )

I did not really enjoy this book. I am unsure whether I get the whole of his philosophy but the parts I did get mostly did not appeal to me. This is not because of religious reasons (I am not religious), I am just not convinced that mankind or indeed any single person would be served well by following this philosophy of radical self actualisation and assertiveness. I am glad I did not read this as a teen/young adult because I fear it might have made me a more unpleasant, less compassionate and ultimately unhappier person (or, to be frank, more of an asshole) than I am today.

I did enjoy some of the prose and some of the passages at least made me think, but I'm also glad it's over and I don't think I will be returning to Nietzsche any time soon. ( )

Esempio paradigmatico della filosofia di Nietzsche e summa delle sue convinzioni, questo libro scuote ogni certezza acquisita, demolisce ogni convinzione, pone un dubbio salutare su tutte le basi del pensiero occidentale. Oltre l'orizzonte di simili macerie, Nietzsche lascia intravedere il volto di un uomo nuovo, di un oltre-uomo infine libero da ogni condizionamento imposto, diretto autore dei propri valori, compiaciuto della sua vita al punto da desiderarne, nel bene, come nel male, l'eterno ritorno. Un inno alla capacità di ognuno di noi di saper ritrovare il proprio vero volto, di sapersi semplicemente ritrovare, di riscoprire quella felicità di vivere che talora crediamo di poter raggiungere solo al di là di questa vita.

If there are any persons who contest a received opinion...let us thank them for it, open our minds to listen to them, and rejoice that there is someone to do for us what we otherwise ought, if we have any regard for either the certainty or the vitality of our convictions, to do with much greater labor for ourselves.
— John Stuart Mill, On Liberty
