Noon and shadow exemplify this dual thinking. The free spirit, according to Nietzsche, is dogged by

   schema:description "Hough succeeds in showing that the doubleness motif strikes deeper into the heart of Nietzsche's thinking than has been realized. Favorite Nietzschean images, such as that of pregnancy, suddenly take on new meaning when considered in this light. Careful to avoid a reductionist view, Hough adds significantly to our understanding of Nietzsche's contribution to modern thought."@en ;

Noon and shadow exemplify this dual thinking. The free spirit, according to Nietzsche, is dogged by a shadow, a shadow cast by the free spirit's efforts to overcome himself. Perfect noon - emblematic of the Ubermensch - is the moment of ecstatic release for the free spirit. Thus the Ubermensch is not a separate "superhuman" being but rather an ecstatic moment in the experience of free spirits."@en ;
