Thus Spoke Zarathustra
(NOW UNABRIDGED)

WRITTEN BY:
Friedrich Nietzsche

NARRATED BY:
Michael Scott

Thus Spoke Zarathustra is a 19th century literary masterpiece and key philosophical work by Nietzsche. Zarathustra descends from his cave in the mountains after ten years of solitude, brimming with wisdom and love and wants to teach humanity.

The individual lessons and sermons delivered by Zarathustra cover most of the general themes of Nietzsche’s mature philosophy, though often in highly symbolic and obscure form. More on Wikipedia.

A Philosophical Comment by Christopher Vinson

"As for Zarathustra, never has a book been so enriching yet painfully frustrating for me. Nietzsche's use of irony is audacious, and his aphorisms arresting. The esotericism of virtue is quite possibly one of the most enlightening concepts I have ever been exposed to. Zarathustra addresses the reader as though he is speaking to his soul, and for that reason, the reader (me, in this case) inevitably espouses a subjective perspective, and consequently feels that he is being privileged to a Truth that has been biding for his understanding. Thus, for me, the philosophies of Zarathustra have become an integral part of life. And it's not just a prolix polemic against religion, as naysayers would have (not to dismiss that some of it is), but rather an elucidation and a betrayal of everything that one has likely been misperceiving all of his life. It provides an impetus, but not a guideline, for life anew--a freedom known only to the few who have chosen to understand. Perhaps a little grandiloquent and recondite at times, but who doesn't like a challenge?"
