Nietzsche’s Thus Spoke Zarathustra: Before Sunrise – Introduction

The world is deep — and deeper than the day had ever thought.

 From ‘Before Sunrise’, Thus Spoke Zarathustrantszbs

A sense of irony attaches itself to Thus Spoke Zarathustra, although not due to any fault of its own (or, perhaps it is the ‘guilty’ book par excellence). It is a work that was written for philosophical purposes, and for a cultured, philosophical audience. Yet, it is written in a style which was, and still is, not recognized as philosophical and is thus not taken seriously as philosophy (disregarding for the moment the scattered clusters of researchers in the Continental tradition). At the same time, however, due to its philosophical content and the status of its author as a philosopher, Zarathustra is regarded by specialists in literature as a work of philosophy. The work thus ends up homeless.
