Uses the Persian religious leader Zarathustra to voice the author's views, including the introduction of the controversial doctrine of the Ubermensch, or "superman," a term later perverted by Nazi propagandists.

Der Fall Wagner : Schriften, Aufzeichnungen, Briefe by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche( Book )

10 editions published between 1896 and 2009 in English and German and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Case Against Wagner was one Nietzsche's last books, and his wittiest. In Wagner's music, in his doctrine, in his whole concept of art, Nietzsche saw the confirmation, the promotion, even the encouragement, of that decadence and degeneration which is now rampant in Europe; and it is for this reason, although to the end of his life he still loved Wagner, the man and the friend, that we find him, on the very eve of his spiritual death, exhorting us to abjure Wagner the musician and the artist.

Friedrich Nietzsche's teaching : thus spake Zarathustra : (a book for all and none) by Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 Overman. Described by Nietzsche himself as "the deepest ever written", the book is a dense and esoteric treatise on philosophy and morality, featuring as protagonist a fictionalized Zarathustra. A central irony of the text is that Nietzsche mimics the style of the Bible in order to present ideas which fundamentally oppose Christian and Jewish morality and tradition
