Thus spake Zarathustra a book for all and none by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche ( Book )

Uses the Persian religious leader Zarathustra to voice the author's views, including the introduction of the controversial doctrine of the Ubermensch, or "superman," a term later perverted by Nazi propagandists. A quasi-biblical style is employed to inspire readers to become more than they have been and to transcend the limitations of conventional morality. --From publisher's description

The gay science : with a prelude in German rhymes and an appendix of songs by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche ( Book )
7 editions published between 1960 and 2008 in English and German and held by 557 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Nietzsche wrote The Gay Science, which he later described as 'perhaps my most personal book', when he was at the height of his intellectual powers, and the reader will find in it an extensive and sophisticated treatment of the philosophical themes and views which were most central to Nietzche's own thought and which have been most influential on later thinkers. These include the death of God, the problem of nihilism, the role of truth, falsity and the will-to-truth in human life, the doctrine of the eternal recurrence, and the question of the proper attitude to adopt towards human suffering and towards achievement. This volume presents the work in a new translation by Josefine Nauckhoff, with a translation of the poems by Adrian Del Caro. An introduction by Bernard Willimas elucidates the work's main themes and discusses their continuing philosophical importance."--Jacket

Friedrich Nietzsche's teaching : thus spake Zarathustra : (a book for all and none) by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche ( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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
