The philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche was born in Prussia in 1844. After the death of his father, a Lutheran minister, Nietzsche was raised from the age of five by his mother in a household of women. In 1869 he was appointed Professor of Classical Philology at the University of Basel, where he taught until 1879 when poor health forced him to retire. He never recovered from a nervous breakdown in 1889 and died eleven years later. Known for saying that god is dead, Nietzsche propounded his metaphysical construct of the superiority of the disciplined individual (superman) living in the present over traditional values derived from Christianity and its emphasis on heavenly rewards. His ideas were appropriated by the Fascists, who turned his theories into social realities that he had never intended. Walter Kaufmannwas a philosopher andpoet, as well as a renowned translator ofFriedrich Nietzsche.

Reviews - What do customers think about Asi Hablaba Zaratustra = Zaratustra Speaks (Spanish Edition)?
Obra maestra Nov 20, 2001
Asi hablo Zaratustra es una obra maestra de la filosofia contemporanea. Jamas he deseado conocer otro idioma (el aleman) tanto como al leer este libro. Esta obra escrita en parabolas, para acentuar su similitud con la Biblia, despliega el pensamiento filosofico de uno de los hombres mas estudiados de la historia, llevada de la mano de una maestria estetica solo comparable con obras como La Divina Comedia de Dante. Zaratustra es la anti-bibila donde convergen las ideas del Dios muerto, la voluntad de poderio y el eterno retorno, base fundamental de la filosofia de Nietzsche.
No solo es una gran obra para el que desea leerla con propositos academicos, sino para todo el que mas alla de querer encontrar respuestas sobre la existencia, esta buscando preguntas, esta buscando cuestionarse, abrir los ojos, ante todo lo antes creido.
