Nick on Yeah, OK, But Still explains the essence of Nietzsche and Thus Spoke Zarathustra beautifully.
As the author mentions, what is unique (and consistent) about Nietzsche’s process is that it has no singular end or method. Any strategy by which the individual succeeds is correct, although all require struggle. We must live with the values of others, confront them, and forge new ones. Values are earned. And after all this, the stages are always just a matter of perspective; it is not reality that must change, but oneself.
