No modern philosopher has been more completely misquoted and misrepresented than Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900). His utterance, 'God is dead', his insistence that the meaning of life is to be found in purely human terms, and his doctrine of the Superman and the will to power were all later seized upon and unrecognizably twisted by, among others, Nazi intellectuals. This translation of Thus Spoke Zarathustra, a spiritual odyssey through the modern world, is therefore extremely valuable in enabling us to judge for ourselves a brilliantly original thinker who had a powerful influence upon such writers as Shaw, D. H. Lawrence, Mann and Sartre. Nietzsche loathed mediocrity; his chief purpose in writing was to restore the quality of any individual's life. His ideas are often harsh and uncompromising, but rarely negative in intent.
