What Friedrich Nietzsche’s Zarathustra Wanted to Say: Creation and Self-Creation or How One Becomes Who One is?

Arūnas Mickevičius


The article sustaining F. Nietzsche's analysis of texts is trying to develop creation and self-creation nature and particularity after "God's death" event. The article attempts to justify the opinion that creation and self-creation of Nietzsche are based on will for the power of principle. Nietzsche's creation and self-creation conception anticipates "antagonism" and "non attachment" to any sources and existing situations. Moreover, it denies "rest of soul" and nostalgia for the past- pointed consciousness. The article is also trying to justify thesis that Nietzsche's phrase - "become who you are" - should not be understood as aspiration to envisage or recognize any primordial and uniform substantive essence. This phrase requires just until extremity to intensify own opinions and assessments and to create new values in this way.
