Friedrich Nietzsche: Thus Spoke Zarathustra: A Book for All and None

Date: 12/2014

Title: "Thus Spoke Zarathustra: A Book for All and None"

Author: Friedrich Nietzsche

Duration: 12 hrs

Review: I love reading Nietzsche for the quality and purity of the sheer rebellion. Nietzsche reminds us that nothing, NOTHING is a given, that every single assumption, from the smallest to the deepest, from the moral to the empirical, is up for grabs. Listening to the thoughts and words of the Superman Zarathustra is nothing but pleasure. A master of moral philosophy and a wonderful writer, reading Nietzsche reminds me of reading William Blake, but simpler, sharper and more accessible. Reading Nietzsche is fun and challenging for me in a way that I haven't been been challenged for quite some time: Literary Greatness challenging. Thanks Liberal Humanities Education, you continue to have been worth it despite what everyone says.
