Nietzsche as educator : the three metamorphoses of a free spirit.
Access changed 5/7/20.
This work examines Nietzsche's views on freedom and philosophic development by turning to Zarathustra's first speech, "On the Three Metamorphoses." This speech provides a key by which to understand and balance the many of tensions in Nietzsche's thought. It reveals the various ways in which an individual's pursuit of freedom requires constant engagement with the surrounding political culture, and challenges notions that Nietzsche was a radical individualist and radical skeptic.
