Así habló Zaratustra (Spanish Edition) by Friedrich Nietzsche

By Friedrich Nietzsche

Se ha dicho, con obvia razón, que los mayores pensadores del siglo XIX fueron quienes construyeron los angeles imagen del mundo que tendrían los hombres del siglo XX. Tal es el caso de Nietzsche.
En Así habló Zaratustra el centro del mundo es, precisamente, el hombre mismo, y a su perfeccionamiento posible se dirige el autor, a través de su célebre postulado del logro de aquello que él denomina el “superhombre”. Esta instancia de superación de lo humano, tal cual había sido entendido hasta entonces, es avizorada por Nietzsche no como una consecuencia lógica de los angeles evolución social y psicológica de l. a. humanidad, sino como un imperativo de los angeles conciencia que, al ser materia consciente de sí misma, forzosamente debe proponerse superarse, alcanzar un plus extremely al que l. a. impulsa su misma condición de ser.
Este impressive libro es un clásico de l. a. filosofía moderna y una excelente prueba de que, lejos de haberse apagado el interés por l. a. obra nietzscheana, hoy está más vigente que nunca.
