Overman Psychology and the Youth

Updated: Jan 18

This can be understood as part two of my previous discussion of Nietzsche and the youth. Here I discuss the extremely important analysis of human psychology provided by Nietzsche’s Zarathustra in sections 1.7 and 1.8 of Thus Spoke Zarathustra. Combined, these two sections address the problematic psychology for the self-overcoming required of the would-be overman. Especially important is the relationship of this psychology to the youth and Zarathustra's political revolution. In particular, at issue is how the greatest aspects of the most talented youth can easily become their greatest danger by way of envy.
