Boek cover Thus Spoke Zarathustra van Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (Paperback)
A Book for Everyone and Nobody
'The profoundest book there is, born from the innermost richness of truth, an inexhaustible well into which no bucket descends without coming up with gold and goodness.' Thus Spoke Zarathustra (1885) was Nietzsche's own favourite among all his books and has proved to be his most popular, having sold millions of copies in many different languages. In it he addresses the problem of how to live a fulfilling life in a world without meaning, in the aftermath of 'the death of God'. Nietzsche's solution lies in the idea of eternal recurrence which he calls 'the highest formula of affirmation that...

Boek cover Thoreau and the Language of Trees van Richard Higgins (Hardcover)
Trees were central to Henry David Thoreau's creativity as a writer, his work as a naturalist, his thought, and his inner life. His portraits of them were so perfect, it was as if he could see the sap flowing beneath their bark. When Thoreau wrote that the poet loves the pine tree as his own shadow in the air, he was speaking about himself. In short, he spoke their language. In this original book, Richard Higgins explores Thoreau's deep connections to trees: his keen perception of them, the joy they gave him, the poetry he saw in them, his philosophical view of them, and how they fed his soul....

Boek cover Thus Spoke Zarathustra van Friedrich Wilhelm Nietzsche (Onbekend)
Friedrich Nietzsche was at times a misunderstood guy, maybe even accidentally controversial. He was outwardly critical of Christianity yet probably secretly identified with those who taught doctrine and morality as a teacher of thought for the masses. Also, he was also opposed very vocally to nationalism and antisemitism, yet after his death, his sister became the curator of his works and twisted them to accommodate her German nationalist views. Later on, they practically became required reading for fascists and Nazis. (He was probably rolling over in his grave.) It wasn’t until the 20th...
