Thus Spoke Zarathustra is the fictional account of the travels and teaching of the prophet Zarathustra. One of the more controversial aspects of Nietzsche's work is that he puts forth the idea of human evolution and the transformation of modern humans from their ape-like ancestors. Nietzsche inserts a number of controversial ideas into his fictional account of Zarathustra, including some reoccurring themes such as the superman, a self-mastered individual who has achieved his full power and promotes the idea that the current state of human development is not the end result.
Thus Spoke Zarathustra is both a work of philosophy and a fictional tale that will appeal to those looking for entertainment that will also spur deep thought.
