Thus Spoke Zarathustra: A Book for All and None ( German : Also sprach Zarathustra: Ein Buch für Alle und Keinen ) (also translated as Thus Spake Zarathustra ) is a philosophical novel by German philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche , 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 Übermensch , which were first introduced in The Gay Science . [ 1 ] [ edit ] Origins Thus Spoke Zarathustra was conceived while Nietzsche was writing The Gay Science ; he made a small note, reading "6,000 feet beyond man and time," as evidence of this. [ 2 ] More specifically, this note related to the concept of the eternal recurrence , which is, by Nietzsche's admission, the central idea of Zarathustra ; this idea occurred to him by a "pyramidal block of stone" on the shores of Lake Silvaplana in the Upper Engadine , a high alpine region whose valley floor is at 6,000 ft.
