Philosophy & Religion • 5.5 hrs. • Abridged • © 1883

God is dead, and the superman is nigh! Nietzsche couched this ultimate expression of his philosophy (1883-91), not as a closely reasoned treatise, but as the passionate utterances of an ancient Persian prophet, Zarathustra, couched in a pseudo-biblical German. In this recording, brief glosses introduce sections of the text, while bits of the Strauss tone poem of the same name bridge major transitions. The narrators speak clearly and with comprehension, but they’re stuffy; whereas, the book is anything but. Y.R. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 05]
