Nietzsche, Friedrich: Thus Spake Zarathustra, v1, 22 Sept 2007.

Friedrich Nietzsche: Thus Spake Zarathustra
(Also Sprach Zarathustra)
Translator: Thomas Common


Using the prophet Zarathustra as his mouthpiece, Nietzsche argues that God is dead, using pseudo-biblical language.

This also contains the thought-experiment of the Eternal Return. (Suppose that you had to re-live your life repeatedly, forever. Would the prospect be blissful or dreadful? If the latter, why arenít you doing something more interesting?)

This has an introduction by Nietzscheís appallingly unpleasant sister, plus some notes in an appendix. It was taken from a PG text file, so I reformatted and restored the italics, adding a TOC and two pictures. Because this contains Nietzscheís famous line that women should be threatened with a whip, I have used the photograph of Lou Andreas-Salome threatening to flog Nietzsche.
