Continuing on Friedrich Nietzsche's Thus Spoke Zarathustra, books 1 and 2 (1883).

We talk through Nietzsche's symbolism (tightrope walkers and gravediggers and snakes, oh my!), the path toward the overman, his screed against the state, the Will to Power as the will to overcome oneself by reconciling oneself with the past, and more.
